China flag meeting inconclusive amid stand-off

India-China border dispute

Neither India nor China has shown any sign of backing off from a face-off that began almost two months ago along the Sikkim border when Indian soldiers entered the Doklam plateau to stop the Chinese army from constructing a road.

He then said, "It is weird that China wanted to keep alive the boundary clash with its most formidable neighbor".

While Beijing is claiming that Indian soldiers are on Chinese territory, New Delhi has said as far as the boundary in the Sikkim sector is concerned, India and China had reached an understanding in 2012 reconfirming their mutual agreement on the "basis of the alignment".

The official however said there was no deployment of extra troops at the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan, where around 350 Indian army personnel have been locked in a face-off with Chinese troops for almost seven weeks.

Holmes also spoke about the United States' silence in the matter and said that the country itself has been very busy dealing with domestic issues, but explained: "If the dispute escalates, chances are Washington will come out in support of New Delhi". "Hopefully peacefully", Admiral Harris said.

Sources were responding to a claim made a few days back by a top Chinese diplomat that Bhutan had conveyed to Beijing through diplomatic channels that the area of the stand-off was not its territory.

A flag meeting was held between the senior army officials of Indian and China on Friday at Nathu La mountain pass in Sikkim.

Last month, we reported that a territorial dispute along the China-India border is threatening to turn into a military conflict. In response, India sent troops as a show of force, sparking anger from China which says the affair is none of its business.

Now, while the world's attention is focused on North Korea, India has increased its alert level amid increased tension with China. China viewed the Indian forces' action an unwarranted interference.
