Will Build Doklam Infrastructure, Says Aggressive China After Satellite Pics

Will Build Doklam Infrastructure, Says Aggressive China After Satellite Pics

"I don't know who offers such kind of photos".

The Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat on Wednesday said infrastructure development by China's People's Liberation Army in the Doklam plateau is temporary in nature.

Reporting from Beijing, the newspaper quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang as asserting that China was entitled to build infrastructure in Doklam.

The photographs, and seemingly ambiguous statements from the government have invited criticism from the Opposition, with the Congress demanding more clarity on the agreement after the 73-day standoff over Chinese road construction on land claimed by Bhutan ended in August past year.

"Our attention has been drawn to some reports that question the accuracy of the position stated by the government in respect to the situation in Doklam", Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said. "I don't know the detailed information", Mr. Lu said. Arguing that satellite imagery showed China has established military establishments in Doklam near the Indian border, the Congress said the Modi government has been caught "snoozing", compromising the country's "security and strategic interests". Neither did he say whether there was any infrastructure development specifically at the face-off area, from where troops from both sides disengaged past year after a 73-day face-off. Donglong always belonged to China and always under China's effective jurisdiction.




India also said both sides have "established mechanisms to resolve any misunderstanding". He added: "We hope the Indian side learns lesson and avoids the incident to happen again".

A day after it denied reports that China had changed the "status quo" at Doklam, the government on Friday appeared to shift its stand slightly, saying it had "used mechanisms" to "resolve misunderstandings" with China.

"We hope relevant parties can earnestly follow through on the consensus reached by the two leaders, move in the same direction and jointly uphold the peace and stability of the border areas and stay committed for the comprehensive development of bilateral relations", he said. "Any suggestion to the contrary is inaccurate and mischievous", he added.
