Eastern border of Ladakh tensions has continued for the past 5 months.
In this, Foreign Minister Jaishankar has said that India-China relations have been badly affected by the Ladakh conflict. Speaking at a special event hosted by the Asian Institute for Social Policy, he said: “India has been building good relations with China for over 30 years. But this year we see that the overall contracts have fallen through. The large number of Chinese troops concentrated in various parts of the border is against these agreements as a whole.
If such a large number of troops are concentrated in the disputed areas, horrific events like the one on June 15 (Galvan Valley clash) will take place as the two sides get closer to each other.
To underscore that atrocity, it was the post-1975 military conflict and casualties. What has been gained by this? The most profound general effect, the greatest political impact, and the greatest impact on bilateral relations have apparently taken place.”, thus said Jaisankar.
