China Spurns US Intrusion in Border Dispute: Says They Have No Role

China says that no US intervention is needed to solve the border tension with India

Friday, 30th October 2020


The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, on Wednesday, talked about the border strains the country was having with India. He said both countries were “capable” of resolving the matter and there was “no need for third party intervention”. They also described the current situation to be “generally stable”.

 

The statement was issued following the telephone call that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had with US President Donald Trump where they discussed the border situation.

 

The Centre on Tuesday announced the two countries had discussed the matter over a telephonic conversation by the leaders of both nations and President Trump also talked about including India in their ‘Group of Seven’ which currently involves Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. To that effect, Trump also put forward an invitation to Mr Modi to attend the next summit that is scheduled to be held in the US.

 

As tensions continue to simmer between India and China, Trump also offered to mediate between the two countries, last week. India however reportedly mentioned that both nations are “engaged” through both military and diplomatic channels in New Delhi and Beijing and at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) so as to come to a resolution.

 

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava talked about the situation and stated India is “fully engaged with the Chinese side to peacefully resolve the issue”.

 

The Chinese Foreign Ministry also said that “important consensus” has been reached between the two countries where leaders on both sides have agreed to uphold “national territorial security and sovereignty” along with “peace and stability in the border region”. He added they are both capable of ironing out the differences through “dialogue and negotiations” and have also set up a “full-fledged border related mechanism and communication channel”.

 

China’s State media later levied accusations against Trump saying he was trying to drive a wedge between India and China.

Trump wrote on a Twitter post after his dialogue with Modi, about the “conflict” between these two nations, both of whom have “powerful militaries”.
