The US department also stated, we want India, China to have conversations because we have the relationship between both governments. Earlier on July 16th, Indian troops stopped road construction by Chinese soldiers which raised a conflict between India and China in Doklam area in the Sikkim sector.

Both nations have been facing a continuous stand-off at the India-Bhutan-China tri-junction in Doklam. Dok La is an Indian name for the region where Bhutan called it as Doklam while China claims it as part of Donglang region. The 3,488 km long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in the Sikkim sector.

Last month, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that India’s interference has not only disobeyed China’s territorial jurisdiction but also challenged Bhutan’s sovereignty and independence. Responding to the stand-off officials said, “We refer you to the governments of India and China for further information.”
