The External Affairs Ministry said today there are no new developments at the India-China military face-off site in Doklam and its vicinity since the August 28 disengagement.
"The status quo prevails in this area. Any suggestion to the contrary is incorrect," the Ministry said in a brief statement.
The Ministry was reacting to recent press reports on Doklam.
The reports said that China has maintained a sizeable presence of its troops near the site of the Doklam standoff with India and even started widening an existing road which is at a distance of around 12 km from the area of conflict.
Troops of India and China were locked in a 73-day-long standoff in Doklam since June 16 after the Indian side stopped the building of a road in the disputed area by the Chinese Army. Bhutan and China have a dispute over Doklam.
Bhutan and India were in touch with each other during the course of the face-off that ended on August 28.(Except for the headline, this story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is published from a syndicated feed.)
