July 15 – Wang Yi, China’s top diplomat, emphasized the importance of stabilizing bilateral ties with India as both nations sought to alleviate escalating military tensions along their extensive shared border.
During the ASEAN meetings in Jakarta, Indonesia, Wang engaged in discussions with Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, stressing the necessity of mutual support and cooperation between the two countries instead of suspicion, as per a statement released by the Chinese foreign ministry.
India and China share a 3,800-km (2,360-mile) border, much of which lacks clear demarcation. In 1962, the two nations engaged in a brief but violent war over the disputed territory.
Since the 1990s, relations have improved following a series of border agreements, and China has become India’s second-largest trading partner.
However, a setback occurred in 2020 when a clash on the border resulted in the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers and four Chinese soldiers. This incident prompted both militaries to strengthen their positions and deploy large numbers of troops and equipment.
While multiple rounds of military and diplomatic talks have contributed to easing tensions, India has described the border situation as delicate and perilous.
During their gathering, Wang encouraged India and China to team up to find a commonly OK goal to their line issues.
Wang stated, “The two sides should provide support to each other and work together to achieve common goals, rather than engaging in mutual weariness or suspicion.”
He emphasized that specific issues should not define the overall relationship between India and China.
The Chinese foreign ministry announced that both sides agreed to hold the next round of talks between military commanders on border issues at an early date.
Since 2020, India has heightened scrutiny of Chinese businesses, banning over 300 Chinese apps, including TikTok. The country has also intensified its examination of investments made by Chinese companies.
Concerning’s new limitations on Chinese firms, Wang required a fair, straightforward, and non-oppressive business climate for Chinese organizations.
