Foreign secretary: No normal India-China ties till border tense
NEW DELHI: Describing India’s relationship with China as complex, foreign secretary Harsh Shringla said the two countries could not have a normal relationship if the border areas continued to witness transgressions.
The remark came in the middle of the disengagement at Pangong Tso. Addressing a meeting hosted by the diplomatic academy of the Russian ministry of foreign affairs, Shringla said the relationship between the two Asian giants was definitely dependent on normal situation at the border.
“As I told our friends in China, we cannot have a normal bilateral relationship if there is no peace and tranquillity in our border areas,” Shringla, on a two-day visit to Moscow, said. “We cannot have our troops having loss of life, having situation of transgression at the border and still go about a normal relationship,” he said, adding that the border stand-off had impacted the larger relationship.
Shringla described the agreement for disengagement as a step in the right direction and said the process was expected to be completed in the next 2-3 days. Shringla called on Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and handed over a letter of invitation from foreign minister S Jaishankar to visit India at a mutually convenient date. Lavrov accepted the invitation, the go nment said
Now normal ties are not possible.. We need to make India more stronger and we will make.
Stronger but no gut to retaliate or declare war on China even claim invade in future.
We cant have normal relationship when our solder life is at risk.
do not trust china and make same mistake of 1962. make them suffer ecnomically. a lesson for india and india should make efforts to become self reliance economy.
Just talking about this does not help. While India has been 'talking", China has been "doing" and has far exceeded India in its economic strength. India has no ability to make them suffer economically.
modi said china never crossed into india so it is india fault
CHINA IS VERY UNRELIABLE RO-E COUNTRY IN THE WORLDAND ANY COMMITTMENT/ AGREEMENT BY CHINA TO BE VERIFIED AS FROM A INTERNATIONAL CHEAT AND FRAUD WITH A PINCH OF SALT AND PROCEED SUITABLY BY GOVT OF INDIA
TRUST is Important , which is missing
relationship can't be built on gun point.
They cannot be trusted .....EVER!!
No country should not have any normal relation with China as that country is not normal in behaviour and actions
The status of banning all chinese goods, not allowing any chinese investments in India or any sort of business - business cannot be as isual until LAC us settled once for all with a fence on either side. CHINA CAN NEVER EVER BE TRUSTED
World love China, only stupid India BJP hate china
We are too fragmented as a people and also our political systems are only adding to those problems. If we can't grow to at least a 10 trillion economy, China will walk all over us in the next 20 years.
China is treacherous, greedy, and immoral. It cannot be trusted. Same with Pakistan.
Let's make ourself mighty, economically and militarily and in all spheres to teach a bloody lessons to the adversaries who often venture on us.
Really? But what it seems India got no gut to retaliate or declare war on China even claim invade in future.
