Hi­malayas row set­tled

The West Australian - - WORLD -

China’s For­eign Min­is­ter, Wang Yi, says he hopes In­dia can learn lessons from a now re­solved bor­der stand-off and avoid such oc­cur­rences in the fu­ture.

His re­marks yes­ter­day came two days af­ter the na­tions agreed to pull back their troops from a dis­puted Hi­malayan plateau where China, In­dia and Bhutan meet. Nei­ther side of­fered de­tails of how the stand-off was re­solved, and China said it could re­sume road con­struc­tion that sparked the con­fronta­tion.

In­dia and China said their troops would con­tinue to pa­trol in the Dok­lam area as they did be­fore the face-off.

The res­o­lu­tion ap­peared to be timed ahead of a sum­mit in China next week that In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi was to at­tend.
