China looking forward to post-Dokhlam engagements with India

Tension between India and China is rising

The 73-day long India China standoff ended on 28 August a year ago after Beijing agreed to halt the road building activities at Dokalam in Sikkim Section.

India is ready to take on any unforeseen situation in Doklam, said Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday.

India's envoy in an interview to Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post had blamed China for the stand-off in Doklam saying it happened because Beijing tried to alter the "status quo" which it should not have.

He said, "in Doklam area, which we call close proximity or sometimes the face-off site, the area where there was close confrontation or close proximity between Indian and Chinese military troops, that there is no change taking place today".

Asked about Bambawale's comments that the 3,488-km long Line of Actual Control (LAC) should be demarcated and delineated, Hua said, China's position is clear and consistent.

"The east, middle and western side is yet to be officially demarcated", she said.

"There are some issues and problems between India and China, if we have to solve those problems, we need to talk candidly".

In January, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat had said the time had come for India to shift its focus from borders with Pakistan to the frontier with China, indicating the seriousness of the situation. In order to maintain the peace and tranquillity, there are certain areas, certain sectors which are very sensitive, where we must not change the status quo.

India has often expressed frustration with the promises made by China, drawing a contrast with Chinese non-tariff barriers that prevent Indian companies accessing the Chinese market.

She stated that India and China both had "every reason to be each other's partners, "riding on "similar national conditions, development goals as well as common interests".

"We have every reason to be each other's partners".

The Indian and the USA delegations achieved important progress on counter-terrorism cooperation between the two countries, the External Affairs Ministry said.
