India’s Polite but Firm Stand at Doklam that has Unnerved ChinaBy Brig Arun BajpaiIssue Net Edition | Date : 18 Aug , 2017The Doklam standoff between India and China is now almost two months old, longest in recent history of stand-offs between the two Asian giants. On 16 Jun ‘17 when china started this mischief against Bhutan of road building in Bhutanese territory, threatening India’s Siliguri Corridor, they never expected India to come in support of Bhutan. They were very sure that they will be able to pressurise and isolate tiny Bhutan. With India coming in and stopping Chinese road building, not only it has surprised China it has left them with no other option but to somehow save face. Recently India’s polite but firm stand on Doklam has been praised by an American Think Tank while they have called Chinese act of churlishness on the issue as childish.
