Indo-China relations are at a very bad stage, Foreign Minister Jaishankar said.

Even after several rounds of talks between India and China, no solution seems to emerge. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has also directly pointed this out. He said categorically that the relations between the two countries are going through a very difficult phase. He said that if these two countries do not come together, they cannot become the century of Asia. Jaishankar also justified importing oil from Russia and Myanmar’s ties to the junta.

Speaking at Chulalongko University in Thailand, he said India-China relations depended on how the two countries amicably accommodate their interests. Recalling the words of Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, he said Asia’s century could only happen when India and China come together. He added that the biggest question today is which direction India-China relations are heading.

Jaishankar said that at present, the relations between the two countries are going through a very bad phase. The reason is China’s action on the border. Speaking about the situation along the LAC in Ladakh, he said China is making unilateral efforts to change the status quo. Because of this, relations between India and China have become very bad.

During a meeting between Jaishankar and the Chinese foreign minister, relations were expected to improve gradually. However, here, Jaishankar said that until border tension eases and peace is established, relations between the two countries cannot be good.

On the other hand, when Jaishankar was asked about importing oil from Russia, he replied, “It is a very difficult decision. There are no restrictions on the import of oil. And it’s not just us who import oil from Russia, there are many countries in this chain. He said that we have to make decisions keeping in mind the interests of the people of our country.
