NEW DELHI: China has established a village 2 km within Bhutan’s territory, according to images posted by a senior journalist with the Chinese state media.
The place is very close to Doklam where the Chinese and Indian militaries had a tense standoff in 2017.
In tweets that have since been deleted, Shen Shiwei, a senior producer with Chinese CGTN News, posted the images this morning of the village established in what he said was the Doklam area and later indicated the precise location of the settlement, NDTV reported.
The report added that the Chinese village of Pangda lies 2 kilometers inside Bhutanese territory.
