China ‘aggressive’ in border row, says India diplomat

0

NEW DELHI: A top Indian diplomat said China is being unusually aggressive in a month-old border dispute with India that shows no sign of easing, media reports said Wednesday. Beijing has made virtually daily warnings to its neighbor over the deadlock on a remote Himalayan plateau, where Indian and Chinese troops have been locked in a tense face off. Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar told lawmakers in a closed briefing on the dispute that India wanted a diplomatic settlement, the reports said. The dispute concerns land near where the boundaries of China, India and Bhutan meet. China has alleged that Indian troops are on its territory. Bhutan and India say the area—known as the Doklam plateau in India and Donglang to China—is Bhutanese. Bhutan has no diplomatic relations with China and is closely allied to India, which says its troops approached a Chinese army unit that entered the zone on June 16 to build a road.
