New Delhi, September 10
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar will maintain talks along with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Moscow shortly, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) introduced on Thursday night.
The talks between the 2 overseas ministers are going down towards the backdrop of an enormous spike in border tensions in japanese Ladakh triggered by contemporary face-offs between the armies of India and China alongside the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
“This issue will be discussed,” MEA Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava stated when requested at a media briefing whether or not the four-month-long border faceoff can be raised by Jaishankar on the talks.
The Indian Army stated on Tuesday that the Chinese troops tried to shut in on an Indian place close to the southern financial institution of Pangong lake in japanese Ladakh the earlier night and fired pictures within the air, a primary such occasion of bullets getting used alongside the LAC after a niche of 45 years.
The Army stated this in an announcement after the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) late on Monday evening alleged that Indian troops crossed the LAC and “outrageously fired” warning pictures close to the Pangong lake.
Jaishankar and Wang are in Moscow to attend a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) assembly.
The focus of the bilateral talks between the 2 leaders is anticipated to be on discovering a breakthrough to chill down tensions in japanese Ladakh.
A gathering between Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and his Chinese counterpart General Wei Fenghe on the margins of one other SCO meet in Moscow final Friday apparently didn’t yield any tangible end result. PTI
