will han­dle more “squarely” is­sues like Dok­lam and not adopt the past ap­proach of try­ing to shelve dif­fer­ences, a Chi­nese ex­pert said on Wed­nes­day. The ex­pert with China’s lead­ing think tank also said Bei­jing will not com­pro­mise on the is­sues safe­guard­ing sovereignty, ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity and core in­ter­ests. “When safe­guard­ing sovereignty, ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity and core in­ter­ests, we will al­ways be as­sertive ... be­cause there is no room for com­pro­mise on these is­sues,” said Yuan Peng, VP at the China In­sti­tutes for Con­tem­po­rary In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions. Asked if he meant that China will deal strongly on is­sues like Dokalm, Yuan said: “It will de­pend re­ally on what kind of cri­sis it is. It will de­pend on the sit­u­a­tion. In the past, we thought we would shelve dif­fer­ences. Now, we will face them squarely.
