The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday said it has not told senior ministers that there would be "no withdrawal" of Indian troops from Doklam, where Indian and Chinese troops are in a stand-off.
"Some sections of media have reported that MEA has told senior Ministers today that there would be no withdrawal of Indian troops from Doklam. Such false reports are without any basis." MEA sources said.
The clarification came in the context of top ministers meeting in the morning ahead of a briefing to be given to opposition leaders on the Doklam stand-off and the Kashmir situation in the evening.
