Opinion | A year after Doklam, lessons not fully learnt
Doklam provided India with an opportunity to identifying its No.1 strategic threat. But India went to chase a misguided 'reset' with China
A full year has passed since the 73-day face-off between Indian and Chinese troops in Doklam ended. Last year, on 28 August, India agreed to withdraw its troops from the territory disputed between Bhutan and China in return for the latter stopping its road construction activity. A lot has happened in the last one year, including an attempt to “reset" India-China ties. This is a good moment to look at the learnings from the face-off and the subsequent course of events.
