Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi is arriving in Moscow on Wednesday evening amidst ongoing tension in East Ladakh in India-China. With his visit to Russia, it was confirmed that on 10 September, talks between him and India’s Foreign Minister S Jaishankar about Ladakh deadlock were going on. There will be talks on resolving the current deadlock in both of them. The two Foreign Ministers are to meet on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). However, no decision has been taken regarding the time of the meeting so far.
While Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar is arriving in Moscow on Tuesday evening with desk officials from the Chinese division, his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi will arrive in Russia’s capital the next day to discuss the deadlock in Ladakh. In this much awaited meeting of Foreign Ministers, further process is expected to be discussed after the dis-engagement and de-escalation in Ladakh.
During the meeting, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar had been given 3488 km to his Chinese counterpart. Reminds to implement previous bilateral agreements, including placing minimum military force on long LACs. He will also demand that the Chinese army retreat from the Finger 4 area of Gogra Hot Springs, Pangong So to maintain the status quo.
However, the Union Defense Minister held talks with Chinese Defense Minister General Wei Fenghi on 5 September, but even then no concrete results were achieved. In Ladakh, both the armies are maintaining their place and there is no reduction in tension. The meeting between Rajnath Singh and the Chinese Defense Minister took place on the night of 29-30 August last month after Chinese troops tried to infiltrate the Chushul sector. India had thwarted Chinese infiltration attempts by giving a befitting reply.
On the other hand, after India’s reply to China on 29-30 August, Chinese President Xi Jinping’s regime is continuously asking the Indian Army to withdraw troops from the southern region of Pangong Soo. At the same time, it is believed that because of stopping the anti-government tone in China, the impasse continues in Ladakh and South China Sea under the guise of Jinping nationalism
