The country’s Defence Ministry has asked New Delhi to withdraw army from the trijunction point in Bhutan where the two country’s has been locked in a stand off since June, according to Indian Express report. The Narendra Modi government has not given any official response to this but New Delhi has maintained that it is looking for a peaceful resolution, there cannot be any unilateral withdrawal. Earlier, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had given a strong statement in Parliament.

“The Chinese border troops have taken initial counter measures at the site and will step up targeted deployment and training. India should abandon any impractical illusions. The PLA has demonstrated unshakable determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Chinese Defence Ministry spokesperson Wu Qian said.

Meanwhile, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, will hold a bilateral with his counterpart and State Councillor, Yang Jiechi during BRICS security summit to be held on July 27 and July 28.

    This Vedic astrology writer's alerts for more care and appropriate strategy for India during year 2017 in article " 2017 - an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September" were issued widely to Indian news media last year in October - November 2016. While covering August -September or near about in year 2017 for India , the alert prediction reads like this : " AUGUST-SEPTEMBER OR NEAR ABOUT LOOKS TO BE PRESENTING WAR OR BIG TERROR , COULD ALSO BE THROUGH SEA". The place of India was indicated to be northern part like Leh Ladakh, which has come out to be somewhat indicative. This was with specific context of India only. Similar major worrisome concerns in the global context were expressed in this writer's article of 16 May 2017 - " Is World War III round the corner ?" - published in the Summer (June) 2017 issue of The Astrologer's Notebook , a quarterly print Newsletter from North Port , Florida.
