India must take a firm stand against China in the current Doklam standoff to demonstrate its commitment to Bhutan
A month into the ongoing Doklam standoff between Indian and Chinese troops at the tri-junction with Bhutan, Beijing continues to hold a hardline stance. In a rare move of brinkmanship, it has publicly refused to negotiate until the Indian Army withdraws from the plateau, while at the same time issuing an ultimatum that its People’s Liberation Army will not wait indefinitely. In contrast, India has taken a more cautious approach in public, using far more measured rhetoric and expressing a willingness to negotiate and execute a mutual withdrawal.
