Why is Bhutanese PM’s comment important?

Bhutanese Prime Minister Lotay Tshering remarks that China also has a role to play in resolving the Doklam dispute. Also, there has been no intrusion in Bhutan from the Chinese side. On the other hand, in any discussion on illegal infiltration, China’s saying the same thing gives rise to many concerns. This is because after the Doklam standoff, China has engaged in building unprecedented military infrastructure in the region. It has also built villages and roads near the Doklam Plateau several kilometers inside Bhutanese territory.

Border dispute with China is not big

The Bhutanese PM had said that there is a lot of information coming in the media about sugar manufacturing in Bhutan. It is not a big deal for us because they are not in Bhutan. Tshering said that we have clearly stated that there is no intrusion. This is an international border and we know exactly what is ours. The Prime Minister said that the problem on our border with China is not a big one. However, some areas have not yet been demarcated. He had said that after one or two more meetings, we would probably be able to draw a dividing line.
