Bhutanese Government Refutes Beijing's Claim That Doklam Is A Chinese Territory
Meanwhile, defence minister Arun Jaitley told the Parliament that the armed forces are strong enough to meet any challenge to the country's security.
Bhutan's Foreign Minister Damcho Dorji said Friday that the situation in Doklam will be resolved peacefully and amicably.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry reacted to a report where China had allegedly offered to move its troops back 100 meters, after India sought the pullback of Chinese troops by 250 metres. Joint Secretary in-charge of ties with Bhutan Sudhkara Dalela said that the discussion focused on BIMSTEC related cooperation.
On the cross-border exchange of power between India, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh, she said: "The Bimstec MoU on Grid Interconnection, which has been finalised, would further facilitate regional energy trade".
Doklam standoff: Sushma Swaraj meets Bhutan counterpart in Kathmandu
However, it was not disclosed what both leaders discussed during their meeting but there are speculations that the current Doklam standoff was on the agenda. In a first, People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) threw open its strategic South Sea Fleet (SSF) base in the coastal city of Zhanjiang to a group of Indian journalists. His remarks came as China's Navy embarked on a massive expansion to extend its global reach. "As you know, we have relationships with both governments. We continue to encourage both parties to sit down and have conversations about that".
The standoff started in June when Chinese soldiers tried to unilaterally change the status quo in the strategically important Doklam region of Bhutan by building a road in the area.
The editorial says New Delhi's actions have "sabotaged long-standing agreements and understandings the two sides have worked hard to build over the years". China and India fought a border war in 1962 and much of their frontier remains unsettled despite several rounds of official-level talks.
