New Delhi [India], Oct. 27 (ANI): The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday asserted that there are no new developments at Doklam and its vicinity and that reports to the contrary were incorrect.
"There are no new developments at face off site and its vicinity since August 28 disengagement. The status quo prevails in the area and any suggestion to the contrary is incorrect and mischievous," Kumar said.
Responding to a poser on the release of Indian prisoner Hamid Ansari, languishing in a Pakistan jail, Kumar said the ministry is in touch with the Pakistani authorities and expects an update on the same very soon.
"We have articulated out stand on OBOR several times from this forum and there is no change in the stand. We are for connectivity but connectivity which is open, free and equitable. Similarly our stand on Kashmir is also very well known," he said. (ANI)
