India-China Border Standoff (CGTN)

Chinese troops and a group of Indian soldiers have been at a stalemate for around 20 days in Doklam in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. This takes place just ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the United States. Some say the move is an attempt from India to show the US it has the power to contain China. Can China and India use their memberships in international blocs, such as the SCO, which India officially joined last month, and BRICS, to reach a peaceful solution? Yang Xiyu, senior research fellow at the China Institute of International Studies, Wang Yiwei, director of the Institute of International Affairs under Renmin University of China, and Madhav Nalapat, UNESCO Peace Chair and director of the geopolitics and international relations department at Manipal University share their insights.
