India, China war unlikely: Dalai Lama

India, China war unlikely: Dalai Lama

Both the leaders were present to attend the meeting of foreign ministers from the countries of the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral and Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC), an alignment of countries in South Asia and South East Asia.

Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bhutan and Nepal are members of the BIMSTEC.

The United States said on Friday that it wants India and China to have a dialogue over the Dokalam stand-off.

State-run media in China said India's Defence Minister Arun Jaitley's recent remarks are sending a signal to Beijing that New Delhi is preparing for the possible military clashes. "It is my opinion China and India can make joint contributions to the safety and security of the Indian Ocean", Capt Liang Tianjun, Deputy Chief of General Office of China's SSF said.

"We hope that the current standoff in Doklam will be sorted out peacefully", Dorji said after the meeting. And as you know, we have relationships with both governments. Since no breakthrough is expected in the seven-week-long standoff at Doklam with China, the Indian Army is closely monitoring the entire border with China - along Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

The standoff between India and China at the Doklam plateau, near the trijunction with Bhutan, is unlikely to lead to a "big war", said Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Wednesday.

"India's intrusion. has not only violated China's territorial sovereignty but also challenged Bhutan's sovereignty and independence", the Foreign Ministry said earlier this month.

Keeping in view that the border standoff between China and India in the Doklam region has lasted nearly two months, Zhao said that China should continue to pressure India and prepare for possible military operations.
