Doklam standoff blown out of proportion, says S Jaishankar

New Delhi, Jul 19 (IBNS): India's Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar told a parliamentary panel on Wednesday that the China-India standoff in Doklam has has been blown out of proportion, reports said.

Briefing the members, he said that the MEA was trying to thaw the tension diplomatically and that the situation worsened due to excessive jingoism from certain sections in the country.

He also said that Delhi was constantly monitoring the situation with Beijing, keeping Thimpu in the loop.

Attending the meeting, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi questioned if the exacerbated situation in Kashmir was India's diplomatic failure.

Answering another question from Gandhi on China's increasing influence on its neighbours, Jaishankar said that it was the strategy of every country to increase its footprints and a similar approach had been adopted by Delhi too.
