However, India has insisted that the troop withdrawal should be mutual.

Two Brigades, each with 4,000 men who are deployed close to the disputed area were not shifted there after the Doklam crisis began but were positioned as part of regular training exercises that sees the Indian army regularly move large formations in what has been a heavily militarised area for decades.

Describing the ongoing Doklam standoff as "not very serious", the Dalai Lama on Wednesday invoked "Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai", a catch phrase that defined Sino- India ties in the 1950s, stressing that the two neighbours have to live side by side in peace. "More we have a way in addressing the the issue between these two great nations, I think we will feel more stable", news agency PTI quoted UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash as saying.

The Dalai Lama said he likes India because there is freedom of speech in the country, reported ANI.

Dalai Lama says that he resides only in the place where there is freedom, and thus he chose India to be his adopted home. The tension was triggered after Indian troops allegedly trespassed into the Chinese territory to stop a Chinese patrol party form conducting a survey in the area for building a road towards Jampheri Ridge. "Even in 1962, Chinese forces which reached Bomdilla, eventually withdrew".

The Dalai Lama himself is a thorny issue for China, which has claimed Tibet as its own and driven Buddhists out of the region and into India. "Where there is no freedom, I don't like it". "The spiritual leader also said that people of the country are the real rulers and the freedom of press is an important aspect to keep the people informed and educated about the realities of the world".
