Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has said the border stand-off with china cannot be resolved through a war but can be settled through bilateral talks.

Strongly defending government’s response to the stand-off at Doklam, the Foreign Minister told the parliament that the government was not just negotiating with China on Doklam, but was also talking on the bilateral relations.

She further said India believes that peace and tranquillity along the border with china was an important prerequisite for smooth development of their bilateral relations.
