    Japanese ambassador Kenji Hiramatsu said Japan was watching the situation closely, Hiramatsu said it had the potential to affect regional stability. "As far as India's role is concerned, we understand that India is involved in this incident based on bilateral agreements with Bhutan.

    External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has made it clear that India would continue to engage with dialogue through diplomatic channels with China to find a mutually acceptable solution. We consider this attitude towards peaceful resolution important," Hiramatsu said. India's actions were in keeping with bilateral security arrangements with Bhutan, he also added.

    What is important is that all parties involved do not resort to unilateral attempts to change the status quo by force. It is important that the dispute is resolved in a peaceful manner, he also said.
