India-China Determined To Resolve Border Disputes: Chinese Defence Ministry

Published

on

India and China are both determined to bolster bilateral relations and have pledged to peacefully resolve India-China border disputes after the Doklam Standoff of 2017. The Defence Minister of China, Wei Fenghe was in New Delhi to discuss inter-military cooperation between the two nations.

On Tuesday night the Chinese Defence Ministry issued a statement expressing the willingness of both the nations to maintain peace at borders and enhance military cooperation.

Wei Fenghe is a General in the People’s Liberation Army of China and this is the first ever visit India by a Chinese defence head since the 2017 Standoff in Doklam between India and China. In recent times India and China have vowed to resolve issues and stand together in the wake of mutual concerns raised by a protectionist west.

Military cooperation between the two nations has been the prime objective between the two Asian neighbours since the Doklam Standoff of 2017 where the two armies were at loggerheads with each other for more than 70 days. As reported by South China Morning Post, Wei stated that his visit to New Delhi will open new doors of military exchanges, trust building between the two armies, cooperation on security, border peace, and new peace prospects.

Narendra Modi, the Indian Prime Minister too cited the centuries-long friendship between India and China. He further added that all efforts to resolve issues with his Chinese counterpart have been successful and relations have taken a better shape in the past.

Wei will now meet the Indian Defence Minister and further discuss the viabilities of enhanced military cooperation and road map of border peace between the two nations. Given the challenges post by the protectionist US, India-China friendship becomes important for each other. India and China must resolve their issues and stand with each other to protect their interests.

India set a new precedent of cordiality towards China when it sidelined itself from the initiatives launched by Japan, Australia and the US to confront China’s One Belt One Road initiative.
