India rejects China's offer to play role on Kashmir

China-India border tension: Rajanth Singh, Sushma to brief Opposition

The CPI-M said the present border fracas had assumed greater salience because Sino-Indian differences had aggravated since the Modi government took power. "We have accumulated a lot of experience from the past - both sides - in addressing a number of matters". Gopal Bagely, however, said that the two countries are using diplomatic channels to ease the tension.

China and India have been engaged in the standoff in the Doklam area near the Bhutan tri-junction for the past three weeks after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road.

"This consensus underlines the strategic maturity with which the two countries must continue to approach each other", he added at an event hosted by the National University of Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

India is developing long-range land-and sea-based missiles as part of the country's nuclear arsenal mordernisation, but with a focus on China, claimed two USA nuclear experts in a recently published article for a digital journal. "This will not only harm the peace and stability of the two countries but also peace and tranquility of the region", he said during his regular press briefing in Beijing when asked what role China could play to defuse tensions between Pakistan and India on Kashmir.

It should be noted that Bhutan held 24 rounds of talks on the issue with China so far. Bhutanese perceptions are getting visibly louder on social media and the growing aspirations of the people suggest that Bhutan's ability to withstand pressures from both China and India has become paramount. Moreover, a country like China can never be trusted, especially with so many points of contention between India and China. History says the seeds of the India-Bhutan friendship were sown in 1958 when then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru visited Bhutan that shares a 605-km long border with India and 470-km with China.

Mulayam Singh Yadav and Sharad Yadav - stressed that the stand off with China should be handled carefully, and every effort should be made to resolve the issue diplomatically.

An article in Asia Times in 2016 commented on the said statement of Doval: "He (Doval) said at the Munich Security Conference in New Delhi in October 2014 that "India would not compromise on its territorial interests", when the very objective of the meetings of the Special Representatives of the two countries is to seek a compromise on the dispute".
