India-China Border Issue Reminds Past War

Diplomats of China and India should prevent an armed conflict amid the possibilities of war between the two countries over Doklam.

A research fellow at The Charhar Institute and director of the Center for Indian Studies at China West Normal University, Long Xingchun, said in the past too there were precedents of unnecessary war and this may harm both the nations.

He added both the nations do not want war and diplomats of China and India should focus more on how to prevent a war.

For more than a month troops of both the countries have been engaged in long stand-off in Doklam.

Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said recently the attempt of China to build a road through Bhutan posed security threat to the country.

Meanwhile, India has blamed China for reversing the status of India-Bhutan-China tri-junction.

However, India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will be meeting his Chinese counterpart State Councillor Yang Jiechi on July 27.
