Brics Summit: NSA Ajit Doval holds talks with Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi

Source War on the Rocks

It is to be seen if Doval and China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi will meet on the sidelines of the summit.

Even as the current dispute between India and China has a disputed territory in picture, the strong messages from both countries have left many speculating as to the consequent dialogues, or absence of it in the upcoming BRICS' (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) National Security Advisors' meeting in China.

Yang separately exchanged views with the three senior representatives on bilateral relations, worldwide and regional issues and multilateral affairs, and set forth China's position on bilateral issues and major problems, the report said, without giving further details. Mr Doval and Mr Yang are Special Representatives of the India-China border mechanism.

Yang also separately met his counterparts from South Africa and Brazil, Xinhua reported.

Doklam or Dongalong, a territory that has been recognised and claimed as technically under Chinese territory, stands as a disputed land that has also been claimed by Bhutan, which objected to Chinese construction in the area. New Delhi has made it clear that it will not allow Beijing to construct a motorable road up to the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet tri-junction through the Doklam plateau.

V K Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs, told the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that India was engaged with China through diplomatic channels to maintain "peace and tranquillity" in accordance with various bilateral agreements, Memorandums of Understanding, protocols and joint statements of 1993, 1996, 2003, 2005, 2012 and 2013.

"India would like to strengthen its relationship with China that was established in the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping in September 2014". Beginning from Thursday Ajit Doval will attend the two-day BRICS National Security Advisers meet in Beijing.

Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has said in Parliament on Thursday that the India-China developmental partnership is not only beneficial for the two countries but for the whole region. And the troops from the both sides should withdraw as Doklam belongs to its ally Bhutan.

"India has been actively attracting foreign investment, has created a favourable investment climate and has been the largest destination for foreign direct investment in the world for the past two years", it said, adding that "strengthening of trade cooperation" between India and China and their "advocacy of open trade policy" would "definitely contribute to promoting open global trade and containing protectionism".
