New Delhi: Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said that relations between India (India) and China (China) are at a crossroads today and it depends on which way to go, depending on whether China agreed in 1967. Indeed, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, in a commentary organized by the media, said that if there was unrest, bloodshed and threats and clashes on the border, it would certainly affect bilateral relations. He said China should not think that relations in other regions can be taken forward, ignoring the reality of border tensions and conflicts. Blaming China for border clashes and tensions, he said China had violated mutual agreements that had led to the deterioration of relations.

China has violated the agreement
Highlighting the background of the recent Indo-China conflict, the Foreign Minister said that it took 226 years to break the stalemate after the 1919 war. After 1988, there were agreements between the two countries in 1994 and 1996 to create peace and normalcy on the border. The foreign minister said China had violated the agreements, which provided that no larger troops would be deployed along the border.
Foreign Minister S Jayashankar reminded China that the development of trade and other relations between the two countries was possible only after the implementation of the previous Sense Committee. In the present era, when peace and stability on the border was violated, it was bound to affect other regions as well.
There is no ‘quad’ military alliance
At the time, the foreign minister made it clear once again that there was no emergence of a quadrilateral military alliance in the Indo-Pacific region. He said the Cold War mentality had not yet emerged in many. He said that today’s world is completely different from the Cold War world. The repetition of the Cold War is not based on reality.
Highlighting India’s engagement with Quad, he said India was resorting to various alternatives to promote its interests. India believes in a multi-polar world and is ready to work together with like-minded countries. He disagrees with some U.S. defense experts on the idea that the Fourteenth was a military alliance built to control China.
