India enhances troop presence along China Border


PV International Desk : India’s military has increased operational readiness along the eastern Indian border with China, reports Reuters.

Neither side shows any sign of backing off from a face-off in a remote Himalayan region near their disputed frontier, said sources.

Indian and Chinese troops have been embroiled in the seven-week confrontation on the Doklam plateau, claimed by both China and India’s tiny ally, Bhutan.

The sources, who were briefed on the deployment, said they did not expect the tensions, involving about 300 soldiers on each side standing a few hundred feet apart, to escalate into a conflict between the nuclear-armed neighbors, who fought a brief but bloody border war in 1962.
