New Delhi, Oct 27: The External Affairs Ministry on Friday dismissed a media report of fresh Chinese troop build-up in Doklam saying the status quo remains in place.
External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in his weekly presser said “I think, it is important to have an accurate understanding of the situation and not to paint an alarmist picture”.
“From what I can make out, this particular news report refers to alleged Chinese build up well within China,” he asserted.
“I would like to reiterate that there are no new developments at the face-off site and its vicinity since the August 28 disengagement. The status quo prevails in this area,” he said adding that any suggestion to the contrary was “incorrect and mischievous”.
Indian and Chinese troops were locked in an over two-month standoff at Doklam. In August both the countries agreed to withdraw the face-off.
