Heating Up! India Deploys Large Numbers of Troops to Chinese Border Dispute Region
India is creating infrastructure and deploying a large number of troops on its side of the border at the disputed area in the Himalayas, China’s foreign ministry has said, adding, that New Delhi’s actions indicate it’s not interested in a peaceful resolution of the standoff.
The impasse between the neighbors and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) partners began on June 18, when Indian troops were sent to the strategic Doklam valley, which separates India from Bhutan. New Delhi said the move was necessary to curb Chinese road construction on the Himalayan plateau, which, according to the India, violates the status quo.
