The Doklam standoff between India and China appears to have figured in talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe here on Thursday.While a joint statement released after the meeting between Modi and Abe did not mention the standoff, Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar, asked about the issue at a media briefing, said "regional and global developments" were discussed.Jaishankar said: "Doklam is not specifically mentioned in the statement.""I think there was a discussion on regional and global developments yesterday (Wednesday) in the broader sense of the term," he said, referring to the close-door discussions between the two leaders in Ahmedabad.Indian and Chinese troops were involved in a standoff at Doklam in the Sikkim sector for two and a half months, which was resolved on August 28 ahead of the BRICS summit hosted by China.In another border incident, Indian and Chinese troops got into a scuffle in Ladakh which saw the soldiers from both sides pelting stones at each other and fist-cuffing.
