External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar's 75-Minute Call With Chinese Minister Wang Yi After Disengagement
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar discussed the situation along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh and issues related to overall India-China relations, with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi during a telephonic conversation that lasted for 75 minutes.
Noting the completion of disengagement in the Pangong Lake area, Mr Jaishankar emphasised that both sides should now quickly resolve the remaining issues along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh.
Mr Jaishankar said that once disengagement is completed at all friction points, then the two sides could also look at broader de-escalation of troops in the area and work towards the restoration of peace and tranquillity.
"The EAM referred to the meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister in September 2020 in Moscow where Indian side had expressed its concern on provocative behaviour and unilateral attempts of the Chinese side to alter status quo. He noted that the bilateral relations have been impacted severely over the last year," the MEA release said.
