New Delhi, July 25 (IBNS): Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Tuesday claimed that India has "admitted" that its soldiers crossed into the Chinese territory, media reports said.

The Chinese Minister has demanded that Delhi must "conscientiously withdraw" its troops that moved across the border in Sikkim early in June.

China asked India on Monday not to  nurture  "illusory thinking" about the Chinese army's ability and immediately withdraw its troops from the Doka La border,  Xinhua news agency reported.

The warning issued comes amid a heightened tension in the relationship between the two countries following a standoff at the disputed Doka La  plateau at the next to Sikkim at the India-China-Bhutan border tri-junction.

According to China, Indian troops have crossed into its territory to obstruct work on a road.

Bhutan also lays claim on the region and India considers the Chinese activities in the region a threat to its own security.

India had said it warned China that construction of the road near their common border would have serious security implications.
