Doval holds talks with Chinese counterpart

Doval holds talks with Chinese counterpart

Doval's visit is being watched closely, particularly his likely bilateral meeting with China's state councillor Yang Jiechi with whom he could discuss the ongoing standoff in Doklam.

China's official news agency Xinhua on Thursday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his leadership, ahead of National Security Advisor Ajit Doval's visit to the nation for the BRICS meeting.

According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Chinese National Security Advisor Yang Jiechi has bilateral relations in front of senior representatives of the three countries, keeping their side on global and territorial serious issues (possibly including the Dokalam) and clarifying their position.

Baglay refused to make comments on the situation at the common border to India, Bhutan and China.

Doval arrived to take part in the Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa (BRICS) NSAs meeting in Beijing which is due to take place on 27-28 July.

Bilateral ties have been strained since the Indian Army stopped China from constructing a road in Sikkim sector's Doklam area.




India said it acted in coordination with Bhutan to oppose the road construction, which "would represent a significant change of status quo with serious security implications".

V K Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs, told the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that India was engaged with China through diplomatic channels to maintain "peace and tranquillity" in accordance with various bilateral agreements, Memorandums of Understanding, protocols and joint statements of 1993, 1996, 2003, 2005, 2012 and 2013.

Doval, along with other heads of the delegations, will also call on Chinese President Xi Jinping tomorrow evening. About the BRICS NSAs meeting, Lu told media that "the meeting on security issues is a major platform for BRICS countries to discuss and conduct cooperation in politics and security fields".

Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has said in Parliament on Thursday that the India-China developmental partnership is not only beneficial for the two countries but for the whole region. He added, "The crux now is Indian border troops illegally stayed on China's territory". Indian troops halted the work in mid June, leading to the crisis. "This is a precondition basis for any meaningful talks between the two countries", Lu said.

While the second component is that the differences between India and China should be addressed in a manner that they do not become disputes. And the troops from the both sides should withdraw as Doklam belongs to its ally Bhutan.
