Hot Summer On The LAC? Looking Ahead At India-China Relations
NEW DELHI: Nine months into the LAC standoff in eastern Ladakh and despite nine rounds of Corps commander-level talks, there’s no resolution yet. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar today said the standoff has ‘profoundly disturbed’ India-China ties, adding that India is yet to receive any credible explanation on why China massed its troops. He struck a note of caution as well: ‘expectations for relations to be undisturbed despite border situation are unrealistic’. In this video chat, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale and China expert Jayadeva Ranade look at the road ahead for the India-China relationship.
