Jaishankar & Chinese counterpart Wang meet briefly at security conference in Germany

For the first time in over six months, Chinese counterpart Wang Yi and External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar had a quick meeting in Germany during the Munich Security Conference. Video from the Munich Security Conference captured Jaishankar and Wang conversing briefly outside the esteemed gathering, which was also attended by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and other international high-ranking diplomats.The two leaders had not met for more than six months before this one. The last time the two met was at the ASEAN Regional Forum in July in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.

 

Since the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) gathered soldiers in eastern Ladakh in May 2020, which resulted in a violent conflict, relations between India and China have remained frozen.Since then, the two nations have agreed to withdraw their soldiers at four intervals during 20 rounds of discussions at the level of corps commanders.India is putting pressure on the PLA to leave the Demchok and Depsang regions, arguing that normalcy in its relations with China cannot be restored as long as the borders remain anomalous.
