He is likely to meet Chinese counterpart, State Councillor Yang Jiechi. Former Research and Analysis Wing officer, Amar Bhushan tells OneIndia that Doval would tell the Chinese that the Prime Minister is keen on resolving the crisis.

However, the main focus of the visit is to resolve the India-china issue in the Sikkim region.

Even as the current dispute between India and China has a disputed territory in picture, the strong messages from both countries have left many speculating as to the consequent dialogues, or absence of it in the upcoming BRICS' (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) National Security Advisors' meeting in China.

The PLA will certainly not be comfortable with the message that will go out if "trespassing" Indian troops continue to be present in Donglang while Xi - the all-powerful Communist party general secretary - is observing PLA's wargames on its birthday. "Shaking a mountain is easy, but shaking the People's Liberation Army is hard", the newspaper quoted a Chinese spokesperson.

Doval would have been aware of this when he arrived here.

Mr Lu also said Foreign Minister Wang Yi has authoritatively made Beijing's position clear on the issue.

It said that the PLA is capable enough to take actions that neither Indian troops nor the government can afford.

Sushma said the issue is due to the "tri-junction point that is between India, China and Bhutan" and that if Beijing unilaterally tries to change the status quo at the tri-junction, then it will pose a threat to New Delhi's security. "It (the standoff) is in Chinese territory according to the 1890 treaty (signed between China's Qing dynasty and British India)". The nation acknowledged that talks through diplomatic channels are taking place and hinted at a meeting between Doval and Yang.

On Friday, the five heads of security delegations from the BRICS countries will formally meet to discuss on global governance, counter-terrorism, cyber security and energy security, worldwide and regional hotspots, and national security and development.
