However, this time China "came with bulldozers and construction equipment with the aim of breaching the point where the tri-junction ends", Swaraj said, adding that the neighbouring country's recent actions are "a threat to our (India's) security".

Earlier she had called an all-party meeting to apprise the opposition parties of the month-long chain of events and the steps initiated by the Narendra Modi Government.

The military tension over the Himalayan tri-junction between the two countries that share a 3,500-km boundary started more than a month ago when Indian troops stopped Chinese soldiers from building a road at the stretch where India and China connect with Bhutan.

China claimed that they were constructing the road within their territory and has been demanding immediate pull-out of the Indian troops from the disputed Dokalam plateau. "We have come to know that China has buried "atom bombs" in Pakistan in order to. prepare to attack India", and Indian intelligence agencies "would know better", he said. China has also built roads capable of carrying heavy loads, starting from Lhasa and connecting with the 11 important bridges over the Tsangpo, and further with LAC.

The debt collector who typically sues, Transworld Systems, usually swears to the accuracy of loan records in its court papers. The 15 trusts have led a serious offensive to track down the borrowers who fall behind on their student loan payments.

The article accused India of harbouring deep suspicions toward China and considering it as a rival and a potential enemy.

He said that this assumption was belied by the reaction from Bhutan and India this time, and what they thought would be a low-risk activity has now been transformed into a potentially high-risk one.

"The channels are unimpeded - it is important to note that aspect", Baglay said before going on to indicate that the diplomatic contact was being made in the respective Chinese and Indian embassies in New Delhi and Beijing. "There has not been a death on the India-China border for forty years, and both sides have learned from experience as to how to manage their differences", added Jaishankar. India says it wants to resolve the issue diplomatically, but China says it won't talk to India unless New Delhi withdraws troops from Doklam. "But since this deals with the tri-junction point it affects our security position", Swaraj said. India is alert towards its security. Asked if he would raise the issue of the standoff with the authorities in China, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said: "We will keep you informed of his other engagements".

Is India comfortable in the knowledge that global powers will support its stand as Swaraj said on Thursday?
