Bhutan Rejects Beijing's Claim That Doklam Belongs To China

Sikkim Nathula Pass

"Jaitley's remarks are the toughest since those recently made by Indian politicians, which also send a signal to China that India is preparing for possible military clashes".

India and China have been locked in a face-off in the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector for the last 50 days after Indian troops stopped the Chinese People's Liberation Army from building a road in the area.

The standoff between India and China at the Doklam plateau, near the trijunction with Bhutan, is unlikely to lead to a "big war", said Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Wednesday.

Reacting to a report that China had allegedly offered to move its troops back 100 meters after India sought the withdrawal of its troops by 250 metres, its Foreign Ministry Spokesperson said, "Beijing will not trade its territorial sovereignty under any circumstances".

The office said in a statement, "China's position on solving this incident is clear and firm". He also said that before Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi administration reused, India has always honored the convention.

But Bhutan Government on Thursday pointed out that Doklam is in the sector or Sikkim territory.

Earlier this month, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that India's "intrusion" had not only violated China's territorial sovereignty but also challenged Bhutan's sovereignty and independence. The Bhutan officials said, "Our position on the border issue of Doklam is very clear".

Sun Hongnian, a borderland expert of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, called the Reuters report "fake news" coming possibly from India, which "intends to turn Donglang into a disputed area". Through its diplomatic mission in Delhi Bhutan has always maintained their contacts with Beijing.
