New Delhi: India is expected to invite all 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for 2018 Republic Day celebrations in 2018, reports said on Saturday.

New Delhi's move comes at a time when China and India are engaged in a standoff in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan tri-junction for past few days after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road.

Notably, some ASEAN nations are not in good terms with the 'Dragon' over territorial claims in South China Sea.
