China willing to play constructive role over Kashmir

Today, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson rejected the Chinese offer and said India's position on addressing all issues, including Kashmir with Pakistan, in a bilateral framework, had not changed.

Former Indian foreign secretary Lalit Mansingh said: "Mr Modi has built up this tough image back home to defend interests and punish those harming India".

"The current standoff will not be able to force us to desert India as an ally and opt for China", added the analyst, who is a former government senior functionary.

The remarks from both sides come amid rising border tension between India and China. It is hard to say the same for India at this stage that appears to have moved into a direct confrontation with China as per its muscular diplomatic policy, with the belief that it would have ample wriggle room to get out of a messy situation.

The Congress had earlier raised concerns over the situation in Dokalam area where the armies of China and India are in a border standoff for a month now after Indian troops objected to road construction in the area.

However, he refused to give details on the "range of issues", saying, "It is not for me to comment as to what grounds the two leaders covered". "The vast area from south of the McMahon Line to the foothills of the Himalayas has historically been China's territory", it said.

The confrontation between India and China over the strategic Doklam region of Bhutan has the potential to flare up into the most serious tension between the two Asian giants since their 1962 Himalayan war.

The editorial said India saw China as a stumbling block in its bid to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group and Beijing had not helped to get Pakistan-based Masood Azhar on the terrorist list notified by the UN. "There was a brief text that...said at the BRICS leaders' informal meeting at Hamburg on the sidelines of the G20 summit, the BRICS leaders had an informal meeting that was hosted by China".

Though the Government of India is not apprehending serious trouble along the worldwide border, the border guarding forces including the Army and the Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel have been directed to remain alert all along the border with China and patrolling in the vulnerable patches have been increased.

"People in Bhutan think that India has for too long prevented their country from normalizing diplomatic ties and negotiating a border settlement with China".
