Officials said Home Minister Rajnath Singh and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will brief leaders of prominent Opposition parties on Friday on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir and the stand-off with China. The Opposition is likely to raise the Kashmir and China standoff issues during Parliament's Monsoon Session that begins on Monday.

Following the government briefing, leaders of political parties also advised the government to consider why India's relations with most of its neighbours had nosedived in the past three years, be it with China, or with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Randeep Surjewala, the AICC media-in-charge said that the Congress party will "cooperate" with the government on issues relating to national security.

The comments came at a time when India and China are disagreeing over the construction of a road in the Doklam area near the Sikkim state of India.

"The government briefed us on the stand-off with China and said that efforts are on to resolve this through diplomatic channels and talks". Qian's statement comes after Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat visited the region and said that India was ready to deal with China, Pakistan and internal security issues. Some of the opposition leaders later said they didn't get satisfactory answers.

People's Daily, the mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China, has published editorials, which can be dubbed as a clear warning to India against "encroaching" on its territory.
