India Says Not Worried Over China Bonhomie With Neighbours

One of the norms of a healthy India-China relationship is that any project should not violate the sovereignty and integrity of India, he said. Urging both the countries to redefine the country soon, Bambawale said the demarcated border is the most situation problem.

"No change" has taken place at the Dokalam standoff area after it was resolved a year ago, India's envoy Gautam Bambawale has said as he squarely blamed China for the face off, saying it happened because Beijing tried to alter the "status quo".

At present both countries are having "a lot of dialogue" at the political level and also at the economic level, the Indian envoy said as he welcomed Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's recent comments that Indian elephant and Chinese dragon must not fight but dance together.

The ambassador, however, said both the nations were well within their rights for an Army build up behind the point of the face-off and the status quo in Doklam remained in place. He said that export of India's IT and ITeS to China and co-operation in the sectors of tourism and healthcare needs to be focused on. "We are, however, prepared to face any eventuality that might arise in future", she said, sending a strong signal to the Chinese side that India won't remain a mute spectator to Chinese incursions.

The meeting assumes significance as India has time and again raised the issue of heavy trade unevenness with China and sought steps to make easy Indian exports in areas including pharmaceutical and agricultural products and information technology services. "This is a very very sensitive area'".

Asked about Xi's flagship Belt and Road Initiative, Bambawale said India supported Chinese efforts to improve the infrastructure in the region, but said these should not undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of any country. "China is committed to resolving the relevant dispute through negotiations". The two countries are growing at fast pace. "If anyone changes the status quo, it will lead to a situation like what happened in Doklam", he said.

The Joint Economic Group was formed in 1988 after the Beijing visit of the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

"It is a leftover from history, but today's governments are trying to tackle it". The two sides have so far held 20 rounds of boundary talks.

Explaining the genesis of the 72-day stand-off past year, Bambawale said it could have been averted if there had been "frank" talk between both sides. "For example, we might have differences of opinion on Belt and Road, but that we must not allow that difference of opinion to become a dispute", Bambawale added.
