The second advisory in as many months has been issued by the Chinese Embassy, even though there were no reports of any backlash to the military face off in any Indian city against the Chinese nationals.

In a fresh advisory, China today asked its citizens in India to pay attention to personal safety and the local security situation.

The advisory, which is stronger then the previous one issued by the China, on July 8 is valid until December 31, 2017.

"Natural disasters, traffic accidents and infectious diseases frequently occur in India", said the advisory, ANI reported. Moreover, several firms in India employ Chinese nationals.

It also asked Chinese citizens in India "to be wary of the situations above in order to secure themselves a safe journey overseas".

Amid Doklam standoff and a recent incident in Ladakh near Pangong lake with the Indian troops, China has asked its citizens to avoid unnecessary travel to India.

The advisory comes ahead of the Brics Summit in Xiamen on September 3, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend.

"The Chinese government attaches great importance to safety and lawful rights and interests of overseas Chinese citizens in accordance with the security condition of the relevant countries", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told reporters in July.
