Here is something from the Bhutan Journalist Wangcha Sangey for all readers (especially "Justice Seekers") of this subject....
On 29th July2017, an article on Doklam Standoff was published in One India News. The writer Vicky Nanjappa a senior Correspondent quoting "highly placed sources"wrote. To quote:
1. "For Bhutan, India guarantees its security through the 2007 Friendship Treaty."
This statement is a reiteration ofthe recent Indian Government stand that Bhutan is a " Protectorate state" of India. Not at all acceptable to Bhutan and far from ground realities.
2 "Bhutan has allowed access to Indians on its territory."
This statement alludes to the forceful encampment of Indian troops on the Bhutanese side of disputed Doklam Plateau after confrontation with Chinese construction party.
Now one can understand why India claimed first that they "were requested by Bhutan Army" and later changed to "in coordination with Bhutan Army"and possibly after my blog which rubbished such ludicrous claims, India declared that they were"protecting the security of their so called chicken neck". India has no right of whatsoever to station Indian Army combat troops on Bhutanese side of Doklam or the disputed area.
Actually India's real goal was to engulf Bhutan because they used the Doklam intrusion to declare:
1. That Bhutan is a "Indian protectorate state." That's what India said of Sikkim before submerging her.
2. India chose to brandish the 1949 Indo-Bhutan Treaty wherein it was stated that Bhutan's foreign affairs was to be guided by India. That clause was removed in the 2007 revised 1949 Indo-Bhutan Treaty. Bhutan opted to conduct her foreign affairs independently and had never sought Indian guidance. However, this time during Doklam crisis,India refused to recognise Bhutan' s right to her own independent foreign policy.
3. India made claims about a"security pact" with Bhutan. There is no such pact. Nothing in the knowledge of the Bhutanese Parliament or the people.
The Royal Bhutan Government or the Royal Bhutan Army whose Supreme Commander is His Majesty the King would never have agreed to India's interference into the Bhutan- China Border Talks especially by use of military force. Bhutan is as mall nation. We have to find peaceful means. Involving Indian Government or Indian Army is the shortest route to national suicide.
