Triumph of Indian diplomacy: Japan extends support to India over Doklam issue

Doklam standoff Chinese state media releases racist propaganda video to mock India

Doklam standoff: India-China troops are held at the trijunction (Sikkim-Tibet-Bhutan) from the past two months as India refused China to build a road in the area.

With India and China locked in their most serious military face-off in three decades, the effort to restrict Chinese business has gathered more support from within the administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, anxious about the possibility of a cyber attack.

Hiramatsu's is also accredited as Ambassador to Bhutan. "As it can affect the stability of the entire region, we have been watching the situation very closely", said Hiramatsu.

Though there have been instances in the past as well when China has not sent the hydrological data, its act in the present context is seen in the light of the ongoing stand-off in Doklam.

Soldiers from the two sides are in a standoff in Doklam, an area between China and Indian ally Bhutan. Japan has expressed that all such issues need to be resolved through dialogue, which is why it is providing diplomatic support to India and Bhutan.

India's Ministry of External Affairs on Friday said that the country will continue to engage with China to find a mutually acceptable solution on the Doklam standoff.


Japan's call for a united opposition to Chinese moves had come in the backdrop of Beijing's unilateral move to change status quo in the East China Sea where it had imposed Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ).

He also did not answer questions on the mobilisation of Indian troops at the border.

Troops of both sides had scuffled near Pangong Lake in Ladakh after Chinese troops tried to cross the Line of Actual Control in the area.

"Under this MoU the hydrological data on Satluj and Brahamputra River has to be shared by China", Kumar said. It is not that China is eager to form a military alliance with India. She said 40 cases related to imports from China have been initiated by the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD).

The dispute comes at a time of deteriorating ties between India and China over several issues, including Chinese investment in Pakistan, its naval presence in the Indian Ocean and India's unwillingness to join Beijing's signature One Belt One Road initiative.
