India's external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has said that if Beijing unilaterally changes the status quo at the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan, then it poses a challenge to New Delhi's security.


She was responding to Samajwadi Party's Naresh Agrawal who questioned the government on the Dokalam standoff.

She added that all the countries including Bhutan support India's stand on the Dokalam issue.

"India wants that troops are removed from the tri-junction point to discuss the issue together. All countries, including Bhutan, are with us," Sushma said in Rajya Sabha.

Indian and Chinese troops have been engaged in a standoff in the Dokalam plateau area near the India, Bhutan and China tri-junction.
