On Friday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is visiting India for the first time in a long time, met with Foreign Minister Jaishankar at Hyderabad House at a representative level. He had met with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval earlier in the day at his South Block office. His visit is significant given the heightened tensions between the two countries following the Ladakh standoff.
On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Yi arrived in Delhi. His visit is primarily intended to begin direct talks between the two countries following the Corona epidemic. He will also invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the BRICS countries’ meeting in Beijing this year.
In Islamabad, India, there is a discussion about Kashmir. rejected
Before arriving in Delhi, Wang Yi attended a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Islamabad. On Kashmir, he said, “we heard the voice of many of our Islamic friends again today.” China shares the same optimism. India, on the other hand, has dismissed his comments on Kashmir, claiming that other countries, including China, have no right to comment on its internal affairs.
For the past two years, there has been a standoff in Ladakh.
Since May 2020, the two countries have been at odds in Ladakh. Since then, no senior Chinese leader has paid a visit to India. External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said last month that India’s relations with China were going through a rough patch. Following the bloodshed in the Galwan Valley, the two countries held several rounds of border talks in an attempt to end the standoff. India is adamant about the army’s complete withdrawal from all of Ladakh’s tense areas.
Tibet has been raised as a topic of discussion.
In the meantime, Tibet’s exiled MP Thubten Gyatso has asked the Indian government to bring up the Tibet issue in a meeting with China’s Foreign Minister. He added that he should also ask the Chinese government to begin talks with the Dalai Lama and end Tibet’s repressive policies.
