He said that India neither had an expansionist design nor attacked any country.At the same time he asserted that its security forces were capable of safeguarding its border.
He said PM Narendra Modi had invited leaders of the neighbouring countries to show that we wanted friendly relations with our neighbours.” We can change our friends not our neighbours” he said quoting Atal Bihari Vajpayee, former Primr Minister of India.
There is a friction prevailing between India and China since June 16 when Indian troops resisted the move of constructing road by the Chinese force at disputed area of Dokhlam.
Dokhlam has been a disputed territory between Bhutan and China over their respective claim on it. Bhutan has officially lodged protest to china against the construction of road in this area.By virtue of an existing agreement India prevented the work on behalf of Bhutan.
China has been calling India since then to withdraw its force immediately from Dokhlam.
