Foreign Minister of India S Jaishankar (Wang Yi-S Jaishankar) with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi
India-China Foreign Ministers Meeting: Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Wednesday met Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. There were talks between them on various issues on the sidelines of the meeting of foreign ministers of SCO countries. These issues included the ongoing tension over eastern Ladakh and other disputes related to India-China relations (S Jaishankar Wang Yi Meeting). It has been decided to hold a commander level meeting between the two leaders soon. It has also agreed to settle disputes in areas other than Pangong Lake. Jaishankar said that after the withdrawal of both the armies in the Pangong area, there has been no interest from the Chinese side regarding the rest of the areas.
Jaishankar reminded Wang of the September 2020 meeting in Moscow, Russia. He stressed the need to abide by the then agreement with China and resolve other issues along the LAC in eastern Ladakh at the earliest (India China Agreement). The foreign minister told Wang that the successful disengagement in the Pangong Lake area earlier this year had created conditions for resolving the issues. It was expected that the Chinese side would work with us towards this objective. But still the situation in other areas is still unresolved.
Relations between the two countries deteriorated due to China
Jaishankar said that China had tried to change the status quo on the border, due to which relations have deteriorated. He clearly said that China should abide by the agreement (India China Current Relation). The External Affairs Minister said that both the sides had agreed that prolonging the current situation is not in the interest of either side. Assessing the overall relationship, the External Affairs Minister emphasized that maintaining peace in the border areas has been the cornerstone of the development of relations since 1988. But efforts to change the status quo in the past year have defied the agreements of 1993 and 1996, affecting relations between the two countries.
Many pending issues will be discussed in the meeting
S Jaishankar and Wang Yi referred to the agreement reached between the two sides to hold another round of senior military commanders’ meeting at the last meeting of the WMCC on 25 June 2021 (India China Meeting). He said that the next meeting would be held soon. In which all pending issues will be discussed and efforts will be made to find a solution. It has also been agreed between S Jaishankar and Wang Yi that both sides will ensure stability on the ground and any unilateral action will be avoided, so as not to escalate the tension. Both the leaders have also agreed to remain in contact.
