According to foreign secretary Vinay Kwatra at a briefing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday and brought up India’s worries about the outstanding issues along the LAC.

The maintenance of peace and calm in border regions as well as adhering to and respecting the LAC are crucial for the normalization of relations between India and China, Kwatra continued.

The foreign secretary continued, “In this regard, two presidents agreed to direct appropriate officials to step up efforts towards swift disengagement and de-escalation.

Prior to the briefing of the BRICS leaders, Prime Minister Modi and the President of China shook hands and exchanged greetings earlier in the day. On stage, there was some brief interaction between the two leaders.

Following their encounter at the G20 dinner in Bali in November, these two leaders interacted for the first time at this event. After shaking hands, the prime minister was greeted by a smile from Jinping. Jinping and PM Modi had been speaking for a short while at that point.

Since the Indian and Chinese soldiers clashed at Galwan Valley in 2020, Modi and Xi Jinping have not met. Since the stalemate, ties between the two nations have deteriorated. To settle the border difficulties, military-level discussions have taken place between the two nations.

The 19th round of negotiations between the two armies’ corps commanders recently took place. The remaining issues will be quickly resolved, and communication and negotiations will continue through military and diplomatic channels, according to a statement from the ministry of external affairs. The two parties agreed to keep the situation calm and peaceful in the border regions in the interim.

Since several decades ago, there has been a border dispute between the two nations. Even a conflict between China and India occurred in 1962.
