India and China should resolve the border stand-off diplomatically, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said on Wednesday, adding that China should maintain its position at the border as it has been in the past. Asked about the situation, the Minister said China should not enter Bhutan’s territory, and that is India’s stand.

“This issue can be resolved diplomatically, that is what we want. Chinese should stay where they were (along the border) earlier,” Bhamre told India Today TV.

“China is entering Bhutan’s territory… they should not enter Bhutan’s territory. This is our security concern and this is our stand, Bhutan has said itself, the King has given a statement that China is entering our territory. Understand what Bhutan is saying. This tension can be resolved only at a diplomatic level; across the table we can solve all the problems,” Bhamre said.
He also added Bhutan has already said that China is entering its territory.
