EAM: We strive for a relationship with China but ...September 29, 2022 09:16
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Wednesday that India will continue to maintain a relationship with China that is based on "mutual" sensitivity, respect and interest.
Jaishankar made the remarks while responding to a question on the consistent comments from Beijing about how things are "okay" between the two countries.
"The phase of emergency response since the Galwan Valley incident has basically come to an end, and the border situation is now switching to normalized management and control," China's Ambassador to India, Sun Weidong has said.
"What I have said, to my mind represents accurate policy assessment of where the state of our relations is. We continue to strive for a relationship with China, but one that is built on mutual sensitivity, mutual respect and mutual interest," Jaishankar strongly asserted during a media briefing.
Minister Jaishankar who is in the US to attend the recently concluded annual UN General Assembly, is now in Washington where he met his US counterpart, Antony Blinken and other top officials of the Biden Administration. -- ANI
