NSA Ajit Doval Meeting Chinese President Xi to break Doklam Logjam


On Friday at the summit of Brics national security advisers (NSAs) in the Chinese capital, Doval met Chinese President Xi Jinping and other senior officials. Ajit Doval National security advisor recently had a meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jinping where they discussed about the related issue, but till now Jinping did not yield any change in their through just because it could end the current standoff in Doklam. However we can assume that the cool off in the recent weeks may give leaders enough time to find a solution.

A Chinese analyst said, requesting anonymity that “the high level of belligerence can be allowed to taper off from the current situation, it provided the leaders enough time to find a solution. But even this is not easy because there are harsh voices prevaling on both sides.”

A slight light of improvement was there in the situation that prevailed after Chinese leaders insisted for weeks that there could be no meaningful dialogue until Indian troops withdraw from their positions at the disputed site in Doklam.

Chinese analyst said that there is little possibility of Xi going back of their troops on the demand that Indian troops must withdraw ahead of the celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army on August 1.

North Korea and has hugely increased its military presence fearing some dangerous moves from Pyongyang, as China also faces a risky situation on its border.The Chinese leader explained that tha ship got away by imposing an air flight control zone over islands disputed with Japan and creating artificial islands in the disputed South China Sea despite US resistance. This is why it is very is difficult for the government to explain India’s refusal to budge an inch in Doklam.

Both Doval and the Chinese leaders stuck to the agenda of the security dialogue of Brics countries which brought all the top security officials together from the member countries in front of media. Doval said that Brics should play a bigger role in international affairs,who also joined other security officials in calling on Xi. They need to deal with a section of hawkish Communist Party over wise it will become a matter of issue which can cause domestic political problem for China’s leaders, the Doklam members demanding action to “push back” Indian troops, sources said.

This is happening ahead of a crucial party congress that will elect the leaders to top positions later this year. From the meeting it was very much clear that both the countries, India and China want to keep the discussion on the Doklam stand-off restricted to the bilateral area instead of making it an issue and requiring the attention of Brics. In his speech, Doval said the Brics countries should show “leadership in countering terrorism”. The Chinese president said about the five countries in Brics were faced with

  • Complex international political
  • Economic security situation

They should communicate more on the following things:

  • Financial cooperation
  • Cultural exchanges
  • Security issues

The meeting can result in apositive response as the focus was on the “strategic issues of regional and global importance” while focusing on “areas where we have consensus”, he said.
