China Turns Push to Shove: Offers to Mediate In Kashmir

The two Asian powers are now engaged in a border standoff over Beijing's One Belt One Road initiative - a trade corridor to connect China with Pakistan - which has run into controversy because of the proposed route plan that includes disputed areas.

The "conflict" near the LoC would not only impact the "peace and tranquillity" of India and Pakistan but also affect the region, he said.

"We are ready to talk Kashmir with Pakistan, but no third party mediation", Gopal Baglay said.

The tensions between China and India have been escalating for the past three weeks over the borer standoff at the Doklam area.

On Thursday, India maintained that the current border stand-off in Doklam would be resolved diplomatically like it had solved all its disputes with Beijing in the past using diplomatic channels.

Mr Baglay also declined to comment on the recent meeting between the top Chinese envoy and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, saying that the Ministry of External Affairs does not comment on activities of embassies or political parties. As part of its controversial "One Belt, One Road" project, which India did not approve, Beijing has been constructing into its ally and through Indian territory under Pakistan's illegal occupation amid doubts over who really benefits.

The Government of India is not apprehending worsening of the situation along the worldwide border with China despite the face-off in the Doka La area in the India-Bhutan-China tri-junction and efforts are on at political and diplomatic level to resolve the issue.

It added that India should withdraw from the area and let China and Bhutan deal with the issue. Asked about the provocative statements from China and the Chinese media over the border issue, the spokesperson said the government had "clearly laid out" its position and approach to deal with the matter.

Opposition leaders were told about the prevailing situation along the Sino-Indian border and Jammu and Kashmir and the government action, officials said. Bhutan is not a "protectorate" of India.

Kristensen and Norris also stated in the article that India's Agni-2 ballistic missile - the two-stage, solid-fuel, rail-mobile projectiles with a range of 2,000km - is probably targeted on western, central, and southern China.

It is better China should say yes to diplomatic measures to diffuse the existing eye-ball to eye-ball situation at Doklam instead of bullying India of war mongering.
