Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs, stated that it was no secret that the relationship between China and India was going through a very trying time. He claimed that both nations have border accords dating back to the 1990s that forbade sending large numbers of troops into restricted areas, but Beijing had ignored those pacts. It is no mystery that India is currently experiencing extremely difficult circumstances, primarily as a result of China‘s violations of agreements India struck with them in the 1990s that prohibited sending sizable numbers of troops into restricted areas.
India and China Relations: Key Points
- It is no secret that India is currently going through a very tough time, mostly because China has violated agreements India made with them in the 1990s that forbade sending large numbers of troops into areas that are off-limits.
- What took place in the valley of Galwan is unresolved between India and China. Relationships are a two-way street, and a lasting partnership cannot be a one-way street. That issue hasn’t been resolved, and that has obviously been casting a shadow.
- India require each other’s respect and compassion. It is no secret that we are currently going through a really difficult time, said S Jaishankar.
- In eastern Ladakh, India and China are embroiled in a protracted border conflict.
- After the Chinese gathered a sizable troop force along the LAC and penetrated the territory claimed by India, the conflict grew more heated in 2020. Along the border, China has been building infrastructure and keeping a sizable force presence.
- Because of what Beijing did at LAC, according to Jaishankar in Bangkok, the relationship between India and China is going through a “very tough moment.”
To maintain calm along the LAC, India and China have signed a number of border accords.
India and China: Border agreements
New Delhi and Beijing, India and China pledged to resolve the border crisis through amicable and peaceful negotiations in a document signed on September 7th, 1993. The agreement states that no party shall use or threaten to use force against the other. The parties also agree to rigorously respect and adhere to the line of actual control that separates them. No actions taken by either party shall cross the threshold of actual control.
