Foreign Ministers Of China And India 75 Minutes Meeting Ends On Positive Note

Reports have been coming in from Ministry of External Affairs which has stated that External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and State Councillor and Foreign Minister of China, Wang Yi had a phone conversation yesterday afternoon. 

As per reports the meeting lasted 75 minutes. Two Foreign Ministers discussed situation along LAC in Eastern Ladakh and also issues related to overall India-China relations.

External Affairs Minister referred to the meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister in September 2020 in Moscow where Indian side had expressed its concern on provocative behavior and unilateral attempts of Chinese side to alter status quo.

The EAM noted that the bilateral relations have been impacted severely over last year. 

EAM said that Boundary Question may take time to resolve but disturbance of peace and tranquility including by violence, will inevitably have a damaging impact on the relationship.

EAM noted that the two sides had maintained continuous communication since then through both the diplomatic and military channels. 

This had led to progress as both sides had successfully disengaged in the Pangong Tso Lake area earlier this month.

Noting the completion of disengagement in Pangong Lake area, EAM S Jaishankar emphasized that both sides should now quickly resolve the remaining issues along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh as per Ministry of External Affairs
