Doklam Standoff ends and its issues.

TNPSC Current Affairs - August 2017 by TNPSC Guru

India announced that both India and China has agreed to pull back its troop from Doklam and also China has halted its construction of road on Doklam which spark the issue between both nation. The move comes ahead of the BRICS summit in China.

Doklam is a narrow plateau locoated at tri-junction between India’s Sikkim, Bhutan and China.
It is a disputed territory which was depicted in Bhutanese Map since 1961 but it also claimed by China as its Territory.
Current issue is because of China’s plan of constructing road in Doklam Region.

Why India Intervene?
India is not claiming Doklam as its Territory but supporting Bhutan against China’s construction of Road in Doklam region.

Important reason for intervention:
1.If the road constructed in the disputed area, it will make Chinese forces closer to the narrow Siliguri Corridor or Chicken’s Neck of India that connect India’s northeast to the rest of the country. It will become major security concern for India.

2. As per the 1949 treaty, Bhutan agreed to let India guide its foreign and defence affairs and in 2007 with new friendship treaty , that made it mandatory for Bhutan to take India’s guidance on foreign policy and gave broader sovereignty and also no requirement of India’s permission for arms imports.So this Made India automatically intervene the Bhutan ,China’s Border disputes.
