India Rejects China Mediation Bid on Kashmir

The government was represented by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley and top government officials, including National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar.

India yesterday asserted that cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir was at the "heart" of the matter that was threatening regional peace and snubbed China for its offer to mediate to resolve the Kashmir issue, insisting it was a bilateral matter between it and Pakistan.

On China, CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury said the government told the leaders that it will tackle the situation with dialogue.

There were questions on the conversations between Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping, but a senior Opposition leader said there were "no convincing answers". "The Congress would fully cooperate with the government on issues relating to national security", AICC media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala said. "Importance of India and China to remain engaged through diplomacy was underlined", said Baglay.

"We had concerns. We told the government to deescalate the situation and resolve the crisis by diplomatically engaging with China without compromising on India's security interests", he said.

According to The Diplomat, many analysts believe that India played a crucial role in Bhutan's 2013 elections, using its economic clout to sway election results and change people's view of the ruling party.

Yechury reiterated the opposition's position that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has "worsened" in the past three years and asked the government to correct its "faulty" approach. Bhutan co-operates closely with India in determining its foreign policy, and the Indian Army is involved in the training of its armed forces.

Several leaders said the government couldn't come up with a credible reason to explain security lapses that led to the attack. "They have promised to support government over the issue".

Geng took issue with Jaishankar's description of the border standoff as a "difference", saying that it is an outright "dispute". Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognises as Dokalam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region. This was because it was painfully aware that a key United States strategic aim is to harness India to its anti-China offensive and feared an aggressive response would only drive New Delhi into Washington's welcoming embrace.

India is estimated to have produced approximately 600 kilograms of weapon-grade plutonium, sufficient for 150-200 nuclear warheads; however, not all the material has been converted into nuclear warheads, they said.
