Diplomacy fails to defuse India, China border crisis


Amidst all tensions faced by the nation regarding the Doklam standoff, Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people believes that the issue is not that serious.

Indian Artillery guns have not been shifted to their emplacements near the site of the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the disputed Doklam Plateau, a part of Bhutan, which is located East of Sikkim.

Indian and Chinese troops have been embroiled in a seven-week confrontation on the Doklam plateau, claimed by both China and India's tiny ally, Bhutan.

Dalai Lama says that he resides only in the place where there is freedom, and thus he chose India to be his adopted home.

"The responsibility for the institution of the Dalai Lama is also of the Himalayan region and Mongolia", he said but emphasised that the next Dalai Lama may not have a political role to play in future and that China should not worry about his role.

Speaking on these topics, the Dalai Lama said: "People are the real rulers of a country, and free press is important to inform and educate people about reality".

This is the first time the Dalai Lama has spoken publicly on the Doklam standoff. "Our small Tibetan community fully practices democracy". Beijing regards the Dalai Lama as a "separatist".

The spiritual leader, who calls himself a "chela" of India, also needled China saying he could do more in India which had freedom.

The Indian Army is in a "no war, no peace" mode against the Chinese military in Dokalam and status quo continues in the area, official sources said on Wednesday.
