"This will not only harm the peace and stability of the two countries but also peace and tranquility of the region", he said during his regular press briefing in Beijing when asked what role China could play to defuse tensions between Pakistan and India on Kashmir.

Regarding the standoff over Doklam, he said Bhutan has been negotiating with China directly on its border issues since 1984.

It was to brief them about the situation on the China border as well as in Jammu and Kashmir.

An editorial in the CPI-M journal People's Democracy has also blamed India's growing strategic ties with the United States for the deteriorating relations with China.

After China rejects all talks till the Indian government calls off its troops from the Sikkim stand-off, the External Affairs Ministry has called for an all-party meeting on Friday.

Replying to a media query Baglay said there was conversation on a range of issues between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Hamburg in Germany, and diplomatic channels remain available to both sides for a resolution of standoff in the Doklam area. Bhutan co-operates closely with India in determining its foreign policy, and the Indian Army is involved in the training of its armed forces.

Sources said that Jaishankar assured the opposition leaders that appropriate actions are being taken to save New Delhi's interests.

As per a report in PTI, the two American nuclear experts have claimed that India, whose main focus has been Pakistan for many years, is now shifting its focus towards China. "The Modi government must realise that there is no alternative to settling the recurring disagreements on the border except through negotiations which have a time-tested framework", Karat said.

"China has a will to solve the problem peacefully by diplomatic means and China also cherishes peace and serenity in the border areas, but the precondition is that the trespassers of India must withdraw unconditionally".

The US researchers have revealed that India is escalating its nuclear capabilities by improving its arsenal, which was earlier developed mostly with Pakistan in mind.

Opposition leaders have been criticising the government for the way it has handled China and Kashmir.

Sharma said that the Congress made its view clear that national security was the priority and advised the government to rise above politics and tackle the situation diplomatically.

So far India's nuclear arsenal was built keeping in mind the threats from Pakistan; however, now the country is taking serious note regarding too much interference in its affairs and territories by China.
