India has rubbished China's claim that the number of troops have been reduced at Doklam. Amidst the standoff, China had released a 15 page document stating that there were only 40 soldiers at Doklam and the number was down from 2.400.
India has however rubbished these claims and said that there has been no scaling down of troops. An official said that there is has no escalation and the standoff continues. There are around 400 of our troops there, the officer also informed.
Beijing has insisted that India withdraws its troops for there to be any meaningful dialogue. However India has made it clear that there can be a resolution to the conflict only through meaningful dialogue.
