A recent move by Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to bring China within the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multisectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMST-EC) regional grouping poses a diplomatic challenge for India. Given India’s abandonment of its initial interest in the BCIM Economic Corridor project, which upset its nearest neighbours Myanmar and Bangladesh, it may be difficult to prevent China from eventually securing a place in the BIMST-EC organisation, observers feel.

After nearly two and a half months of tension and fear of a war between two Asian giants, the Doklam stalemate has been resolved, though not in the way India wanted it. On Monday, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs in an official statement said China and India had agreed to a mutual withdrawal of troops from Doklam and revert to status quo ante June 15.
