New Delhi, Aug 4: In a latest statement on the prolonged Doklam Standoff, China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) said that it has shown utmost goodwill and its restraint has a bottom line.

China’s Defence Ministry, spokesperson PLA Colonel Ren Guoqiang on Thrusday laste night said, we have shown “utmost goodwill” and “sought to communicate with India through diplomatic channels”, but our restraint has a bottom line.

His remarks came after External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj told Rajya Sabha that diplomatic dialogue is only way to resolve the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops at the trijunction with Bhutan and this should be seen in the context of the entire bilateral relationship.

On Wednesday, Indian External Ministry said that the peace and tranquility of the India-China boundary constitutes the important prerequisite for the smooth development of bilateral relations.

However, according The Indian Express sources, India wants to resolve the month-year-old dispute peacefully but is very clear about not letting the Chinese construct a motorable road to Jampheri.
