Sikkim standoff at Doklam: In a stern message directed towards India, China has said that People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have been waiting patiently at Doklam but will not do so for an indefinite period, according to Indian Express report. Beijing has conveyed this message to foreign diplomats. A few diplomats have conveyed this message to Indian counterparts in Chinese capital and Bhutanese counterparts in New Delhi. It has been learned that foreign diplomats were briefed about ongoing standoff during a closed-door briefing last week. China has also informed some of the G-20 countries about the situation, the report says. Last month, Indian Army blocked Chinese road works in Doklam and have since been in a faceoff with PLA troops. Beijing wants Indian troops must pull back. It has categorically said that the dispute was between China and Bhutan but the Indian soldiers have jumped in.

A diplomat from one of the P-5 (permanent members of the UN Security Council) countries, told The Indian Express that their colleagues in Beijing attended the briefing and were given the impression that the Chinese side will not be waiting for an indefinite period. “This is quite worrying, and we have conveyed it to our Indian colleagues in Beijing and Bhutanese colleagues in Delhi,” the diplomat was quoted as saying IE.

On the other hand, India has maintained that both the governments had reached agreement in 2012 that the trijunction boundary points between India, China and a third country will be finalised in consultation with the country concerned. “Any attempt, therefore, to unilaterally determine trijunction points is in violation of this understanding,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in its statement.

The Chinese also have conveyed diplomats that they have strong evidence to prove that Doklam belongs to them.

    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.

      We should probably deploy more troops near the disputed area...let us not tolerate the actions of Chinese army anymore... its time that we show some grit and determination. India is a nuclear power and China understands this very well...

        India now should deploy additional 100 Brahmos missiles and most advanced weapons along the Sikkim border, this will make PLA remain patient all throughout their life. I strongly believe that India would have already done it, secretly. China understand only one language of Force against Force. India is demonstrating it very well, although with lot of restraints.
