New Delhi and Beijing have bilateral arrangements requiring China of sharing hydrological data on cross-border rivers between May 15 and October 15 every year. But sources in New Delhi told the DH on Tuesday that no data had been received from Chinese Government during the past five months. Beijings reluctance to share river data with New Delhi now added yet another irritant to the bilateral relation, which was already been strained and reached at its lowest ebb during the recent 72-day long face-off between Indian Army and the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army at Doklam Plateau along the disputed China-Bhutan border.
