Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A top In­dian diplo­mat said China is be­ing un­usu­ally ag­gres­sive in a month-old bor­der dis­pute with In­dia that shows no sign of eas­ing, me­dia re­ports said yes­ter­day. Bei­jing has made vir­tu­ally daily warnings to its neigh­bor over the dead­lock on a re­mote Hi­malayan plateau, where In­dian and Chi­nese troops have been locked in a tense face off. For­eign Sec­re­tary S. Jais­hankar told law­mak­ers in a closed brief­ing on the dis­pute that In­dia wanted a di­plo­matic set­tle­ment, the re­ports said. “Jais­hankar told us that China’s ag­gres­sion and rhetoric on the re­cent stand­off is un­usual,” a mem­ber of the par­lia­men­tary panel at Tues­day’s brief­ing told In­dian me­dia. “We will con­tinue to en­gage with them through di­plo­matic chan­nels,” the for­eign min­istry num­ber two was quoted as say­ing by Press Trust of In­dia news agency. —Agen­cies
