China disregarded border pact with India: Jaishankar
Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that China has disregarded the border pacts and added that the Galwan Valley standoff has been casting a shadow on ties between the two nations.
“We have agreements with China going back to the 1990s which prohibit bringing troops in the border area. They have disregarded that. You know what happened in the Galwan valley. That problem has not been resolved and that has been clearly casting a shadow,” he said at Indian community event in Sao Paulo in Brazil,
Speaking on the current border situation between India and China, Jaishankar said that a relationship cannot be a one-way street and mutual respect has to be there in order to sustain it. “They (China) are our neighbours. Everybody wants to get along with their neighbour. In personal life and country-wise as well. But everybody wants to get along with on reasonable terms. I must respect you. You must respect me.”
“So, from our point of view, we have been very clear that we have to build the relationship and there has to be mutual respect. Each one will have their interests and we need to be sensitive to what the concerns are for others for a relationship to be built.”
India and China have been engaged in a standoff since April-May 2020 over the transgressions by the Chinese Army in multiple areas including the Finger Area, Galwan Valley, Hot springs, and Kongrung Nala. The situation worsened after violent clashes with Chinese troops in Galwan Valley in June 2020.
“Relationships are a two-way street. A lasting relationship cannot be a one-way street. We need that mutual respect and mutual sensitivity. Right now, it is no secret we are going through a very difficult phase,” Jaishankar added.
Jaishankar also thanked the Indian community for serving as an effective bridge between Brazil and India. “India-Brazil ties are defined by good sentiment, great goodwill and increasing cooperation. Thank the Indian community for serving as an effective bridge,” he added.
