Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a tense border stand-off for over two months on the Doka la area of the Sikkim sector, seriously straining their relations.

Amid repeated PLA threats to oust the Indian soldiers from Doka la, claimed by both Bhutan and China, New Delhi and Beijing withdrew their troops late last month following diplomatic negotiations.

Indian troops had entered Doka la area to stop Chinese soldiers from building a road which New Delhi said would affect its strategic interests.
