Border stand-off: Ajit Doval is likely to visit China for meeting of BRICS NSAs on July 26-27New Delhi, July 14, 2017: With China raising the pitch on the border stand-off over the last two weeks, India on Thursday maintained a measured tone, saying that diplomatic channels were “available” and were “being used” to address the situation.

Sources told The Indian Express that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is likely to visit China on July 26-27 for the BRICS NSAs’ meeting hosted by his counterpart, Chinese State Councillor Yang Jiechi. Both are also the Special Representatives designated by their governments to discuss border issues.

New Delhi, meanwhile, also reiterated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping had a “conversation” on a “range of issues” on the sidelines of the BRICS leaders’ meeting last week in Hamburg. The Chinese government had said that there was no official meeting between the two leaders.

Asked whether the border stand-off was raised by Modi with Xi in Hamburg, Ministry of External Affairs’ official spokesperson Gopal Baglay said, “I would leave it to your imagination and common sense on what should be covered in ‘range of issues’.”

Elaborating on Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar’s views in Singapore, that there was no reason why India and China will not be able to deal with border issues, Baglay said the two sides have accumulated a lot of experience from the past in addressing various issues.
