01 August 2017

The standoff at Doklam was staged by China at the request of Pakistan to divert India's attention to unnecessary matters.

After all that embracing, has U.S. left India out in the cold over standoff with China?

The deadlock between Indian and Chinese soldiers is continuing for weeks over border dispute and it's now getting worse. Incidents of similar nature have happened in the past but are normally sorted out locally and should not be given undue importance,"government sources said".

It added that India has "several advantages" in the sphere of global opinion, chief among them being the fact that it's a Western-style democracy.

Around 15-20 personnel of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) came 800 metres inside Indian territory in Chamoli district on the morning of July 25, officials said.

This area has also seen aerial transgressions and infiltration by foot patrols in 2013 and 2014. "Partially, it (the news report) is correct", Bhatt told HT.Located 140 km from Dehradun, Barahoti is an 80-km-long pasture where local grazers go with their livestock.In Dehradun, officials admitted that they were surprised to learn about the media reports from Delhi on the Chinese intrusion in Chamoli district. Government-controlled Chinese media has carried several reports threatening escalation of troop movement in various sectors if India does not withdraw from Doklam.

The area is a demilitarised zone as agreed upon between the two countries and the ITBP jawans patrol the region without weapons, they said, adding the jawans perform their duty in a non-combative manner. "Transgressions do occur, which are due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control", they said. Incidentally, the Chinese had intruded into this area past year too in July and carried out an aerial sortie by helicopter.

In the 1962 War, the PLA did not enter the middle sector and the fighting took place in the western and eastern sectors. Indian shepherds and Tibetans, who bring their yaks for grazing, use the Barahoti pasture.

Subsequently, in June 2000 it was decided that ITBP troops would not be carrying arms to three posts - Barahoti, Kauril and Shipki in Himachal Pradesh. India sends a civilian group backed by ITBP in civilian clothes to measure the area.
