Chinese defence analysts expect that Beijing will carry out a small-scale military operation within two weeks to expel Indian troops from Doklam.
India wants to resolve the dispute over the standoff between their armies in the Sikkim sector diplomatically, but China says it won't talk unless India withdraws troops from Doklam.
"It has already been more than a month since the incident, and India is still not only illegally remaining on Chinese territory, it is also repairing roads in the rear, stocking up supplies, massing a large number of armed personnel", the foreign ministry said in a statement.
It has been said that the Tibet military region has also conducted exercises in the region, which Zhao Gancheng, director of the Center for Asia-Pacific Studies at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies, believes is a hint that China could use military means to end the ongoing standoff.
"The chances of doing so are increasing as the Indian side is still saying one thing and doing another", he told the Global Times.
Speaking of the standoff and the prior warnings that China had given India, Hu said: "India, which has stirred up the incident, should bear all the consequences".
President Xi Jinping is set to meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a summit of BRICS nations in the Chinese city of Xiamen in early September and has said he hopes for greater cooperation within the bloc.
The editorial added, "India is concerned that the road China was building in Doklam might threaten the security of the Siliguri Corridor", however, it questioned that "how does that justify Indian troops' incursion into another country in utter disregard of global treaties?"
"The Modi government's hard line stance is sustained by neither laws nor strength. This administration is recklessly breaking worldwide norms and jeopardising India's national pride and peaceful development", the article read.More news: SHOCK WARNING: Interest rates could soon RISE, Bank of England deputy says

"Its move is irresponsible to regional security and is gambling against India's destiny and its people's well-being".
Karat was critical of the "confused approach" of the Modi government regarding bilateral relations with China and neighbouring countries.
"The government remains prepared for its responsibilities to ensure the security of its citizens and territory, but Sushma Swaraj yesterday said that war is not the answer", MEA official spokesperson Gopal Baglay said while addressing a press conference in the national capital.
"We are not negotiating only on Doklam, we are talking about bilateral relations in entirety".
While China has asked India to back off and said that it is a matter strictly between China and Bhutan, it has not issued a statement on Bhutan's discontent with China. That's why Doklam is not the lone issue.
"It is a war with an obvious result", the editorial said.
China's Foreign Ministry issued a document Wednesday setting out what it called "the facts" about Indian troops "trespassing" in Chinese territory, calling on India to immediately and unconditionally withdraw and saying Beijing would work with Bhutan to resolve the boundary issue.
Desai, a Labour Peer in the British House of Lords, did not consider the Doklam standoff a mere India-China issue but rather equated it to the geo-political tensions across the globe, primarily in the South China Sea.
Beijing sees a clear demarcation of borders according to the 1890 treaty-claiming 89 sq km in the Doklam plateau south of where India sees the China-Bhutan border-but Delhi thinks Beijing is mistaken.
