China Alleged To have Built Village In Disputed Territory In Bhutan


Imagery from space shows that a village complete with arms storage bunkers has been built. In the highly fractious border area contested by three countries. All claim to have sovereignty and the dispute has been going on for some time. The new village is said to be in one of the said contestant’s areas built by another contestant. The third contestant has an interest as the land is a corridor area that links its northern states. All in all, it is a recipe for fireworks to erupt when no one wants a war on their hands. However, it is also in a part of the world where mediation is not easy and not the cultural norm. One observer states that we are virtually seeking on a powder keg that is about to explode.

Given the tough terrain and inaccessibility of the area concerned. It makes it more difficult for parties that wish to work for peace to intervene.
