Doklam disengagement a victory for Asia, says China's state-run media

Doklam disengagement a victory for Asia, says China's state-run media

It was normal for the two giant neighbors to have differences, Wang told a news briefing ahead of the summit in the southeastern city of Xiamen that India's Narendra Modi is to attend.

The standoff began in mid-June after Chinese troops started building a road in the area, which is disputed between China and India's ally, Bhutan. "We hope the Indian side will learn lessons from this incident and prevent similar incidents from happening again".

"In recent weeks, India and China have maintained diplomatic communication in respect of the incident at Doklam".

Wang said "it's only natural" for two major countries to have "some problems in our interactions".

Experts from India, China and the United Kingdom told Sputnik that while being the host of the upcoming BRICS Summit in the southern port city of Xiamen, China had to make some concessions to try to ease tenions over its the border dispute with India which in recent months in order to avoid any unintended surprise at the event.

The US and Japan, who share a thorny relationship with China, too, sent senior representatives to the Belt and Road conference in May that India boycotted. Doklam is claimed by Bhutan and close to India's arterial corridor, which connects its northeast region with the rest of the country.




BRICS Business Forum, a major side-event of BRICS Summit, is expected to gather a record 1,200 attendees in Xiamen, east China's Fujian Province on September 3 and 4, including executives from more than 50 Fortune 500 multinationals.

Indian Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba on Tuesday said that China made "very shrill" comments during the Doklam standoff, but India's silence worked, PTI reported."They have been very shrill in their comments".

Indian External Affairs Ministry broke the news on the development on Monday morning, which was shortly followed by the Chinese Foreign Office confirming the disengagement.

For Beijing, the upcoming summit of BRICS leaders - from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - in Xiamen next week, the biggest global gathering ahead of the five-yearly Communist Party national congress, appears to have provided impetus for a rapprochement with New Delhi. Once relevant arrangements are decided we will let you know. "As the two countries deepen their understanding, they must pay ore attention to avoid any misjudgments that may lead to a new crisis", it said.

Modi refused to join President Xi Jinping's signature Belt and Road initiative to knit together Asia and beyond, making India the lone country to boycott a summit in Beijing in May.
