National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will visit China tomorrow to attend BRICS meeting in Beijing. The two days visit comes in the backdrop of ongoing standoff between India and China in the Doklam region.
Indian and Chinese soldiers have been locked in a face-off in Doklam area of the Sikkim sector for over a month after Indian troops stopped the Chinese army from building a road in the disputed area.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said in Rajya Sabha last week that all countries support India’s stand on the Doklam issue. She said, if China unilaterally changes status-quo of tri-junction point between India, China and Bhutan, it poses a challenge to India’s security.
She had said the entire nation is united in condemning China’s activities.
