New Delhi: On Thursday, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi met for an hour in the Indonesian city of Bali. Both leaders talked about various issues, regarding the ongoing border dispute in eastern Ladakh, the returning of Indian students to China, and the resumption of direct flights between the two nations.

The talks occurred on the sidelines of a gathering of the foreign ministers from the G20 countries.

Jaishankar tweeted that the talks focused on “specific outstanding issues” pertaining to the border situation, in an oblique reference to the over two-year-old military standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. The external affairs minister said in a tweet

India has been pressing for quick disengagement of troops from all the remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh to ensure de-escalation of the situation, asserting that peace and tranquillity along the border are pre-requisites for progress in overall ties.

Due to Beijing’s COVID-19 restrictions, thousands of Indian students were not able to land in China for over two years. India has discussed this issue with China on several occasions.

Two points have also been discussed regarding the resumption of direct flights, which have been suspended amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Two foreign ministers met for the first time since Wang’s March 24 and 25 visit to India this year.

The Galwan Valley clashes have escalated the tension between the two nations. Both sides gradually increased the deployment of their soldiers with heavy weaponry.

The two sides finished the disengagement process last year on the north and south banks of the Pangong lake and in the Gogra area.

Each side currently has around 50,000 to 6 0,000 troops along the LAC in the sensitive sector.
