Doklam standoff handled with great maturity: Puri

IANS  |  New Delhi 

handled the Doklam standoff "with great maturity", Union Singh Puri said on Friday.

"The Doklam issue was handled very well and with great maturity," Puri, a former diplomat who has also served as India's Permanent Representative to the UN, told reporters here.

Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a tense border stand-off for over two months on the Doklam area of the Sikkim sector, seriously straining their relations.

Amid repeated PLA threats to oust the Indian soldiers from Doklam, claimed by both Bhutan and China, New Delhi and Beijing withdrew their troops late last month following diplomatic negotiations.

Indian troops had entered Doklam area to stop Chinese soldiers from building a road which New Delhi said would affect its strategic interests.
