China and Foreign Minister 'Jaishankar' meeting: Kashmir issue was raised
Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, head of Monday's meeting with his Chinese counterpart, stressed the importance of India-China relations and the need for stability at a time when the world is in an uncertain state.
Jaishankar and Wang Yi had a limited conference followed by a delegation-level conference. Although planned much in advance, the conference arrives days after India passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill, revoking Article 370 clauses that gave J&K privileged status.
China raised concerns about Ladakh. While responding to the formation of Ladakh as a Union Territory and calling it a perversion of their "territorial sovereignty," the Chinese also expressed concern about the current situation in the area calling for "restraint" on India. Wang Yi also said that China and India are two major countries, and we also have major obligations to maintain regional peace and stability. They are following these advancements very closely when it comes to the recent tensions for both India and Pakistan and the potential implications. He also said that they hope India will also play a positive role in global peace and prosperity.
The foreign minister of India said that being back in China was a wonderful joy, and he remembered warmly his past years. He was so pleased that he had the chance to visit and plan for the unofficial meeting for both the rulers early in his term. They hope to see shortly, and also to co-chair the for high-level social and people-to-people interactions system with Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
