Himalayas row settled
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.
