The government is ready for any eventuality in Doklam, said Union Minister for Defence Nirmala Sitharaman.
The Minister’s statement comes in the midst of India-China efforts to reset their troubled ties, and ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s expected bilateral meeting with President Xi Jinping in June. Mr. Modi will visit China to take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit to be held in Qingdao on June 9 and 10.
“We are alert and ready for any unforeseen situation in Doklam. We are constantly working on the modernisation of our forces. We will maintain our territorial integrity,” the Minister said.
Her comments also come within days of Indian ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale saying that the Doklam standoff happened because the Chinese military altered the status quo.
