Indian Army is in 'no war, no peace' mode in Doklam

The Indian Army is in a 'no war, no peace' mode against the Chinese military in Dokalam and status quo continues in the area and why China does not follow the ethics of Panchasheel in letter and spirit.

There has been no specific movement of troops and weapons by the Indian Army in the area and China should realise that whatever movement is taking place, is for maintenance purpose.

There has been no enhancement of army personnel in the India- Bhutan-China trijunction. India is in no war no peace mode in Dokalam.  In military parlance, no war, no peace mode refers to a confrontation or face-off position with enemies.

India and China have been locked in a face-off in the Dokalam area of the Sikkim sector for 50 days after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from building a road in the area.

China claimed it was constructing the road within their territory and has been demanding immediate pull-out of the Indian troops from the disputed Dokalam plateau. Bhutan says Dokalam belongs to it but China claims it to be its territory and says Thimphu has no dispute with Beijing over it.
