Doklam Dispute Resolved Through “Diplomatic Maturity”: Sushma Swaraj

NEW DELHI: The India-China face-off in Doklam was resolved through 'diplomatic maturity without losing any ground' and status quo has been maintained, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today.

Ms Swaraj told the Lok Sabha that the main objective of the informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Wuhan was to ensure mutual comfort, mutual understanding and mutual trust between the two leaders and all the three objectives have been achieved.

'We have resolved the Doklam issue with diplomatic maturity without losing any ground. There is no change in the status quo (on the ground). There is not an iota of change. The face off at sight has been resolved on August 28, 2017,' she said during Question Hour.

The External Affairs Minister said the Wuhan informal summit was held without any agenda and without having any objective to discuss any specific issue.

Before the summit, the foreign ministers of the two countries decided that the leaders should not be restricted to any specific issue, she said.

'The decision to host Wuhan was taken not to resolve any issue but to create a conducive environment. Three main objectives were to ensure mutual comfort, mutual understanding and mutual trust. In all the three objectives, we have achieved success,' she said.
