New Delhi: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Sunday expressed friendly relations with India, saying that China and India should stop harming and doubting each other to resolve the border issue. China said that India is our friend and partner.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang has not considered the border dispute to be solely responsible for the poor relationship between India and China. Wang mentioned that both countries are friends and partners. We should stop doubting each other. Wang has attributed history to these relationships. He said this at his annual press conference on the current state of relations between India and China since the border standoff in eastern Ladakh in May last year. Foreign Minister Wang said in response to a question that it is necessary that both countries settle their disputes and expand bilateral cooperation. He said, “The border dispute is a product of history. It is not solely responsible for the Sino-Indian relationship. “
Wang’s comments on the border issue came after a 75-minute telephonic conversation with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar. At the same time, on Friday, Indian Ambassador Vikram Misri met with the Deputy Foreign Minister of China Luo Zhaohui and appealed to complete the withdrawal process of troops from all areas of East Ladakh. Wang said in his remarks that the world hopes that both China and India protect the common interests of developing countries and strengthen the multi-polar system in the world.
Without directly referring to the East Ladakh deadlock, he said, “Whatever happened right or wrong in the border region last year is clear…. “We are committed to resolving the border dispute through dialogue and consultation,” Wang said. At the same time, we pledge to protect our sovereign rights as well. “The Chinese Foreign Minister said,” On many important issues, our positions are similar or close and due to common national realities, so China And India is each other’s friend and partner, not a threat or rival. “He said,” both countries must help each other rather than harm each other to succeed. We should increase cooperation instead of doubting each other. “
