Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah were present at the meeting, held at Singh's residence.

Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj will on Friday evening brief opposition parties on the India-China standoff in Doklam and on the situation in Kashmir ahead of Parliament's monsoon session that begins on Monday.

The standoff between India and China in the Doklam Plateau, adjoining the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan, was now a month old, with no end to it yet in sight.

The all-party meeting, to take opposition leaders into confidence on the two key issues, would also be held at the Home Minister's residence.
