Opposition to move privilege against against Sushma Swaraj in RS

Opposition to move privilege against against Sushma Swaraj in RS”

"Our stand is that we maintain restraint in language and keep patience and engage in diplomacy". Even if there's a war, there have to be talks after that. But war is not a solution to anything.

India, she said, is engaged with China to resolve differences, not only on the stand-off at Doklam but all matters related to the border, Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and the blocking of United Nations sanctions against Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfit chief Masood Azhar.

The Congress and other Opposition will give notices in Rajya Sabha for bringing the breach of privilege motions against Swaraj for "misleading Parliament" on India's foreign policy.

In her statement in Rajya Sabha yesterday, Sushma Swaraj stated that for tackling such high-intensity issues, one needs to control the comments and show patience.

"We will continue to engage with the Chinese side through diplomatic channels to find a mutually acceptable solution on the basis of the Astana consensus between our leaders".

"The meeting of the BIMSTEC Foreign Minister's on August 10-11 would discuss progress on the implementation of the agenda of action agreed at the leaders' retreat and on all other agreed areas of cooperation in the run-up to the 4th BIMSTEC Summit to be hosted by Bimstec chair, Nepal, later this year", he added.

Also responding to the questions of Indian Army's capabilities, Sushma said that the military is always ready as they are meant to fight wars, however, "war can not resolve problems".

"We have a strong Army but war is not a solution".

Senior Congress member Anand Sharma alleged that first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru's name had been omitted from the address delivered by Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh at the 60th anniversary of Bandung Conference.

Bhutan and India maintain that Doklam, or Donglang as the Chinese call it, is a Bhutanese territory.

A combative Swaraj rejected the Opposition contention that the Modi government has no policy with regard to Pakistan, asserting that it had laid the "roadmap" envisioning peace and normalcy even before it took over. "The day they stop promoting terror, we will start the talks", she said replying to a discussion on "India s foreign policy and engagement with strategic partners".
