The Royal Government of Bhutan's statement issued on June 29, said the construction of the road inside Bhutanese territory was a direct violation of written agreements of 1988 and 1998 and affects the ongoing demarcation process between the two countries.

India, the other day has turned down China's offer to mediate tensions between Pakistan and India over the Kashmir issue and has said that it does not require a third country's intervention on the issue.

Sources said the opposition was informed about the ground situation in Dokalam area and what the government meant to do to de-escalate the border tension. "What the Indian government pursues is to use the peace talks as a cover to encroach on China's territory and change its status quo".

The ministers insisted that the attack was not an outcome of any security lapse but it took place because the bus carrying the pilgrims was not registered with the authorities and moved much after the security forces had withdrawn from the area.

THE OPPOSITION is unlikely to adopt a "very aggressive" position on the border stand-off with China in Parliament, after arriving at a broad understanding with the government ahead of the monsoon session starting Monday to maintain a measured tone in line with India's diplomatic position on the issue, sources told The Indian Express. Sharma said that Congress made its view clear that national security was the priority and advised the government to rise above politics and tackle the situation diplomatically. The government replied that it was for China to answer.

The Opposition parties appreciated the government's efforts to take them into confidence on these critical issues. "All of us know that the heart of the matter is cross-border terrorism perpetrated on India, including Jammu and Kashmir". Today India is led by the Hindu supremacist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), while Pakistan's rulers seek to advance their own mercenary interests by using Islamist organizations to channel the opposition to the Indian state in a reactionary, communalist direction.
