New Delhi, July 14 (IBNS): Leading political parties on Friday supported the NDA government's stand on the Doklam situation, which has led to a month-long stand-off with China at the Sikkim border.


"All participants expressed strong support for India's approach and also for the need for national unity," the office of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement.

Giving assurance that parties will rise above politics, the importance of India and China to remain engaged through diplomacy was underlined in the meeting.

"There was widespread appreciation of the Astana understanding between India and China that differences between them should not become disputes," the statement said.

"The unique nature of very close and longstanding India – Bhutan relationship was recognised," it further said.

Union Minister Rajnath Singh chaired the meeting of all parties.
