China, India in close communication: FM Wang Yi
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Day after major escalation between two South Asian neighbours India and China, Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday said that both the countries are in close communication on resolving border issues.
"China and India are in close communication on resolving relevant issues through both diplomatic and military channels", Global times quoted Wang as saying. Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian, meanwhile, said, "From the Chinese side, we do not wish to see more clashes."
Tensions have enveloped the whole South Asian region after nearly 60 Army personnel, 20 from India and 35 from China, lost their lives in a skirmish at Ladakh's Galwan valley. Earlier on Tuesday, India accused China of failing to adhere scrupulously to the June 6 agreement reached between senior military officials of the two countries for de-escalation of the situation in Eastern Ladakh where troops from both the sides have been involved in a face-off since early May. While a Chinese military spokesperson said that the Indian side should strictly restrain their frontline troops and return to the correct track of dialogue and negotiations to resolve the differences.
