A week after talks with China about border negotiations, India moves into Bhutan


Border negotiations between Bhutan and China include talks over Doklam.

New Delhi:

Just a week after China and Bhutan met and decided to continue border negotiations, Indian Foreign Minister Vinay Mohan Kwatra paid a two-day visit to the Buddhist kingdom.

A tweet from India’s ambassador to Bhutan, Sudhakar Dalela, said there were “exciting conversations, positive outcomes, a growing partnership”.

The border negotiations between Bhutan and China remain important for India as they involve talks over Doklam. This area of ​​Bhutan overlooks India’s “chicken’s neck” – the stretch that connects the northeast to the rest of India. In 2017, the Indian and Chinese armies engaged in a two-month confrontation in Doklam.

A few years ago, in what is perceived as an attempt by China to further increase pressure on Bhutan, they launched a new attack on Bhutan’s Sakteng Reserve. This borders on the Indian Arunachal Pradesh, which is very sensitive for India in relation to China.

Most recently, on December 9, Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a confrontation in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh. Sakteng Shrine borders Tawang District.
