Doklam Plateau: Tibetan exiles support India in border standoff with China

British deputy high commissioner said it is an issue between India and China

Official sources said that in addition to the number of soldiers and tanks in Tibet by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China, artillery and air defense units are being "added to some extent" but such a lenient view towards the actual Line of Control Which cannot be seen as a danger bell for the Indian security forces.

Terming the current situation in Doklam as different from the previous standoffs, it further warned that India should not "harbor any illusions and underestimate the resolve of the People's Liberation Army to defend China's sovereignty and territorial integrity". Bhutan had said that the area where the road was being built was its own and China was doing it without permission. China has accused Indian troops of trespassing into Doklam or Donglang, a region which is controlled by Beijing but is claimed by Thimphu. Therefore, the border standoff in the Doklam area is linked with China's domestic politics. The total number of Indian soldiers deployed in the region is around 350.

India and Sri Lanka are also diplomatically engaged over the issue of Tamil fishermen in Sri Lankan waters and Sushma Swaraj had taken this up with then Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake during his visit to New Delhi in June.

"No village in Sikkim has been evacuated nor is there any such proposal by the forces", Indian Army sources told Sputnik.

In the state-run Global Times article, Chinese experts said that they fear a greater possibility of military clashes after India's defence minister said that his country could face "any challenge" to its security. "This is why we are standing with India", said Tashi Dhondup, the group's spokesman, adding that China was "illegally occupying" the area.
