China, India defense ministers meet over tensions

New Delhi says India, China have agreed to reduce tensions over border dispute India, China defence ministers meet amid rising border tensions
Bennie Garza | 05 September, 2020, 16:10

The two delegations of India and China had met at the invite of China on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meeting. Fenghe had held a meeting with India's defence minister Rajnath Singh on Friday.

Wei said the two sides should promote peace and stability and work to cool current tensions, China's Ministry of Defence said in a news report about the meeting posted on its website. China has strongly objected to India's move.

The defence ministry said that India "categorically" conveyed to the Chinese side the country's position on developments along the LAC in the last few months including the Galwan Valley in the western sector of the India-China border.

Chinese and Indian forces clashed along the disputed border in the Himalayan region of Ladakh in June, killing at least 20 Indian soldiers. "The cause and truth of the current tension on the border between China and India are very clear, and the responsibility lies entirely with India".

Singh, for his part, noted the importance of a peaceful border relation with China, saying both sides should keep the channels of military and diplomatic dialogue open.

Following what was the second major clash at the Pangong Tso region along the border, between the Indian and Chinese troops, the Indian Army cruised to occupying strategic heights of the South Bank of the lake.

India will not compromise on its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and ties with China can not go back to normal unless peace and tranquility are restored along the common border, foreign secretary Harsh Shringla said on Friday.

Both sides accuse the other of provocative behaviour including crossing into each other's territory this week, and both have vowed to protect their territorial integrity. I hope not. But they're certainly going at it. Several rounds of military and diplomatic talks on the crisis have been unsuccessful.

Now, the word in China is that the usage of such military measures by the Indian defence forces along with the decision to deploy warships in the South China Sea region in close coordination with the USA is a grave miscalculation, and "India will stand no chance of winning" if a border war ensues between the two nations. Furthermore, he reiterated that he is talking to both New Delhi and Beijing about the ongoing situation. China thus far has never waged war when the foe was ready and prepared.

"If we can do anything we would love to get involved and help".

Trump has offered to mediate between the two nuclear-armed nations in the past.

Singh also extended an invitation for Shoigu to visit India for the next meeting of the Inter-Governmental Commission for Technical and Military Cooperation which is expected to be held towards the end of this year, it said.
