Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is visiting India, met National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on Friday. This is the first visit of a senior leader of China after the violent incident of Galwan Valley in June 2020. The relations between the two countries became very tense after the Galwan Valley incident. Both the countries suffered losses in the violent clash that took place here. Wang is also scheduled to meet his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar. Wang will leave for Nepal from India today i.e. Friday.
On India-China relations, India has said many times that if the standoff and tension on the border continues, then the relations between the two countries cannot be as normal as before. The special thing is that this visit of the Foreign Minister of China to India has happened at a time when the war between Russia and Ukraine is going on. After this war, the geospatial equations seem to be changing globally. While China has supported Russia's action, India has kept its role neutral. India says that the Ukraine problem should be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to India is taking place at a time when there is a ruckus over his Kashmir statement in Pakistan. In the meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the organization of Islamic countries held in Pakistan, Pakistan raised the issue of Kashmir loudly. The foreign minister of China also participated in this. He also gave a statement on the issue of Kashmir. He had said, 'Today again we heard the words of many Islamic friends on Kashmir. China has the same hopes on this issue.' At the same time, India rejected Wang Yi's statement.
