Diplomacy fails to defuse India, China border crisis

The Dalai Lama said that the only way forward is the old adage of'Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai. PTI file

India had granted political asylum to the Dalai Lama who fled his homeland almost six decades ago, as a young monk of 24, to save himself from the Chinese Army, who sought to crush the mass uprising in Tibet against what they described as "China's imperialist designs".

We are in no war no peace mode in Dokalam, the sources said. China however regards it as its territory and calls it Dong Lang. Speaking at the Rajendra Mathur Memorial Lecture organised by the Editors Guild of India, the Tibetan spiritual leader on Wednesday said that "propaganda makes things complicated", and that the media is to blame for the sharp rhetoric.

Indian troops went into Doklam in mid-June to stop a Chinese construction crew from extending a road India's military says will bring China's army too close for comfort in the northeast.

India and China have a 3,500-km (2,175-mile) -long mountain border over which they fought a 1962 war that ended in India's defeat.

"If the Narendra Modi government continues ignoring the warning coming from a situation spiraling out of control, countermeasures from China will be unavoidable", it said.

China has been unrelenting with its statements and threats against India.

China has warned New Delhi not to be drawn into a Western military alliance led by the United States and including Japan.

The second source said the worry was the standoff could drag on into a summit of BRICs nations China is hosting next month. He had said, "What is imperative now is for the Indian side to take concrete actions to honour its solemn promises on Tibet-related issues as well as the important consensus reached by the two sides on settling the boundary issue, in particular never again using the 14th Dalai Lama to undermine China's core interests..."

The Tibetan spiritual leader said there are periods when the two neighbours use "harsh words", but the spirit of "Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai" is the only way forward.

India's army ran low-key exercises in the Ladakh sector of the western Himalayas, where previous disputes have flared, though it is thousands of miles distant from Doklam.
