A leading Chinese newspaper Global Times has said that China tries hard to avoid a military clash with India, but it doesn't fear going to war to safeguard its sovereignty.

In a report on Tuesday, it urged both countries to exercise restraint and avoid the current conflict spiraling out of control.

The newspaper said one important reason that prompted India triggering the border dispute this time is its worry over China 's development in recent years.
