Urging India to make a joint effort with China to maintain peace along the border, China's Ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui today said neither India nor China can afford to have another Doklam incident.
He said, "We cannot stand another Doklam incident. Let's make a joint effort to maintain peace along the border."
He also added, "Some Indian friends suggested that India, China & Pakistan may have some kind of trilateral summit on the sidelines of SCO. So, if China, Russia & Mongolia can have a trilateral summit, then why not India, China & Pakistan?"
"The Chinese Defence Minister, Minister for Public Security will visit India. Special Representatives' Meeting on Boundary Question will be held in Beijing this year. The two foreign ministers will co-chair the 1st meeting of high-level people-to-people & cultural exchange mechanism," Luo tweeted.
Doklam standoff, which started when Chinese troops tried to build a road to the area in violation of understandings arrived at by both countries, was one of the longest face-off between the two countries.
