China opens border dispute with Bhutan
New Delhi : Continuing with its expansionist agenda, China has now created a new border dispute with Bhutan, one of India's traditional ally.
At a virtual meeting of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in the first week of June, Beijing objected to the grant for Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary (SWS) in eastern Bhutan's Trashigang district bordering India and China, claiming that the location was disputed.
Even as the rest of the world is struggling with the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan city of China's Hubei province, Beijing has been aggressively attempting to alter the status quo in East China Sea, South China Sea and with India in Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh.
As per Strat News Global, the GEF Council gathered to decide on funding for various environmental projects across the world, was shocked by China's objection and instantly rubbished it.
