Vijay Gokhale’s trip comes two months after national security advisor Ajit Doval met China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi in Delhi.
Retired army intelligence officer Colonel Vinayak Bhat claims satellite images show troops, equipment, and fortifications, though they're all within Chinese territory.
Doval will meet his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi in the first such meeting since the Doklam standoff.
The latest launch moves India’s armed forces a step closer to its goal of being able to launch the missile from land, sea, and air.
The ongoing visit of the Bhutanese royal family to India, the first since the Doklam standoff ended, is rich with significance.
