Singapore: Today Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar has also conveyed in Singapore that, India and China handled border matters in the precedent and there is no cause the two nations will not be able to handle this time.
Foreign Secretary further conveyed that, it is a long border, as no part of the border has been decided upon on the ground. It is probable that from time to time there are dissimilarities.
He was reacting to questions on the standoff flanked by Indian and Chinese troops in the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector at a lecture on ‘India-ASEAN and the Changing Geopolitics’. The speech was organized by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the Indian High Commission.
China and India have been occupied with a standoff in the Doklam area close to the Bhutan tri-intersection for more than three weeks after a development gathering of the Chinese Army endeavored to construct a street.
Doka La is the Indian name for the area which Bhutan perceives as Doklam, while China claims it as a component of its Donglang district. Of the 3,488-km-long India-China outskirt from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km area falls in Sikkim.
