The People's Daily: While some Indian political figures want to win worldwide support by making irresponsible remarks on the military standoff along China-India border, Chinese experts said that China would make no compromise on the territorial issues, but the upcoming visit of Indian national security advisor for the BRICS summit in September might ease the tensions. Xinhua said Yang also met separately with NSAs of Brazil and South Africa.

Doval, who arrived in Beijing yesterday, will also call on Chinese President Xi Jinping tomorrow evening. Beginning from Thursday Ajit Doval will attend the two-day BRICS National Security Advisers meet in Beijing.

It did not say whether the Sikkim imbroglio was raised during the Doval-Yang meeting. Apart from the border dispute at Sikkim's Doklam area, Doval is expected to raise India's concerns over China's Belt Road Initiative, in which it has refused to participate.

China, which now holds the presidency of the five-member group, will host the 2017 Brics summit in September at Xiamen city.

It is to be seen if Doval and China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi will meet on the sidelines of the summit.

India calls Doklam Bhutan's and perceives any Chinese presence in the area as a threat to its own security. Both sides acknowledged talks through diplomatic channels to ease tensions.

The border row between the two countries was triggered in June when the Indian Army stopped a road construction by Chinese troops in Doklam. India has been providing security to this territory, supposedly on behalf of Bhutan, triggering the escalation of tensions. India protested the construction, fearing it would allow China to cut India's access to its northeastern states.

In a written reply, Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh said the two sides have agreed to continue their engagement at various levels to enhance mutual understanding and address outstanding issues.

"India would like to strengthen its closer developmental partnership with China that was established in the visit to President Xi Jinping to India in September 2014", Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay said while reacting to Swaraj's statement in Parliament.

"Banning Chinese products will lead to their economy becoming weaker and our "Make in India" policy will get a boost", Shetty said during Zero Hour.
