Diplomacy fails to defuse India, China border crisis

Dalai Lama and Barack Obama China demands India pulls back troops in border dispute
Velma Reese | 10 August, 2017, 01:52

Indian Artillery guns have not been shifted to their emplacements near the site of the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the disputed Doklam Plateau, a part of Bhutan, which is located East of Sikkim. India and China have to live side by side....

Despite China making it clear that the Indian Army needs to withdraw first from the Doklam plateau for meaningful dialogue to take place, the Army is waiting to see whether Chinese Army officers and soldiers will travel to five designated Border Personnel Meeting Points on Independence Day on August 15 to greet their Indian counterparts, a tradition between the two forces.

While calling for a peaceful resolution to the Doklam row, the 14th Dalai Lama said, "China and India are two big nations and "Hindi-Chini- Bhai Bhai" is the only way to end the ongoing standoff".

But China did not respond to India's suggestion in the talks that it move its troops back 250 meters (820 ft) in return, said one source with close ties to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government.

Arsenal fans aren't buying Arsene Wenger's latest Alexis Sanchez update
He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while", the Guardian quoted Wenger as saying. Wenger added: "I can't tell you if there have been any bids for Alexis".

The Dalai Lama's comments come amid the continuing Sino-Indian military stand-off in Bhutan's Doklam area which both India and Bhutan consider Bhutanese territory. There has not been any concrete evidence to support that claim, however.

"There is freedom in this country, I can do more and have more opportunity to share", Dali Lama said, adding that "where there is no freedom, I don't like".

China has warned New Delhi not to be drawn into a Western military alliance led by the United States and including Japan. "India and China have to live side by side", he said. Beijing will be especially irked by what the Buddhist spiritual leader had to say about democracy in the country. "Where there is no freedom, I don't like", the Tibetan spiritual leader said. "Our small Tibetan community fully practices democracy".

In April, following his visit to Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang had said, "For some time, due to reasons known to all, the political foundation for China-India relations has been damaged, casting a shadow over bilateral relations and the boundary negotiations".
