Bhutan hopes for an end to China’s territorial aggression

Chinese troops faced off against Indian soldiers in disputed land near Bhutan in June as China tried to build a road on the disputed border territory.

The Doklam area, where China is building, is claimed by tiny Bhutan. India and Bhutan are allies, and India has warned China that its actions could destabilize the region.

The region is near a narrow corridor between India and its northeast regions.

College students in Bhutan have protested China’s aggression.

“What China is doing on the border lines is very risky because they are encouraging war and India is just trying to warn them, saying that this will not be allowed,” said Bhutanese student Chundu Singye at a protest.

Bhutan has asked China to stop construction and return the situation to the status quo.

“I think China, India, and Bhutan should all come together and have a meeting and make a solution for this one,” said Bhutanese student Tsheltrim Dorji.
