'India and China must be frank with each other to prevent another Doklam'
March 24, 2018  10:40
In an interview to the Hong Kong newspaper, the South China Morning Post, Gautam Bambawale, India's ambassador to China, blamed Beijing for the military standoff in Doklam, saying it 'changed the status quo in the region'.
Political level communication has come back, Ambassador Bambawale -- one of India's most astute diplomats -- said, adding, 'But more importantly, I think we need to have discussions between the two militaries. That has not fully resumed.' 
While troops on the ground can talk to each other, the ambassador revealed, the Indian Army and the People's Liberation Army headquarters had not resumed communications. 
'We would like it to resume as soon as possible,' Ambassador Bambawale said. You can read the interview here: http://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/2138678/india-and-china-must-be-frank-each-other-prevent
