China ready for talks to reopen Nathu La pass closed during Doklam standoff

The standoff between India and China was resolved in August.

China on Tuesday said it is ready for talks to reopen the Nathu La pass for Indian pilgrims, which it had closed in mid June over the military standoff at Doklam.

“China is ready to keep communication with Indian side in regard to opening of the pass and other issues concerning the pilgrimage by Indians,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said here.

While the over two-month standoff was resolved last month, the pass through which many Indian pilgrims go to Kailash Mansarovar in China’s Tibet remained shut.
