Doklam Standoff- The fight of Supremacy

The standoff over Doklam is not just a territorial dispute but is a fight of supremacy. Bhutan is struggling to protect its land and India is supporting its closest ally by the virtue of the friendship treaty which was signed in 2007.But, it is the China which sees the issue as a fight of supremacy.

An agreement for maintenance of peace and tranquility was signed between China and Bhutan in 1998 and several rounds of talks has followed for status quo in the region. But the recent attempt by China to construct a road in the region has escalated tension between the three countries.

Why India is a party to the dispute.

• The Doklam plateau lies in the Chumbi Valley region which is just 90k.m. away from the Chicken neck s corridor. A Chinese road in the region will give them easy access to chicken neck corridor which they may block to their advantage during war to disconnect the Indian supplies in the north east region.Thus it raises security and strategic concerns for India.
• India is bound by the friendship treaty of 2007, which obliges it to protect the sovereignty and security of Bhutan.
• The changing geopolitics of the world demand that India must challenge the hegemony of China to protect its interest and to win trust of the neighboring countries.
However, China sees the issue as that of its sovereignty and is imposing irrational prerequisites to settle the dispute.

China s stand on the issue:

• Doklam standoff highlights familiar patterns through which the Chinese negotiate, adjust and engage. It s a part of Chinese diplomacy to use military power to threaten the rivals.
• It has demanded that India must unconditionally withdraw its troop from the region. On the other side, India is willing to withdraw if Chinese also this issue amicably by upholding the sovereignty of all.
