Doval's visit key to ease Sikkim standoff: Chinese analyst

Beijing: Indian National Security Adviser Ajit Doval's visit to Beijing for a meeting of NSAs from BRICS countries may be a key to ease tensions between India and China over the military standoff in Dokalam, a Chinese analyst said. Doval is scheduled to visit China for the meeting on July 27-28.

The meeting is hosted by his Chinese counterpart and State Councillor Yang Jiechi. It is part of a series of meetings of officials from BRICS countries-Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa ahead of this year's summit of the five-member bloc of emerging countries in Xiamen city in September. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend the summit.

Ma Jiali, a research fellow at the China Reform Forum thinktank, said Doval's visit may be a key and would serve as an opportunity to ease India-China tensions.
