Situation On LAC Standoff Is Because Of Chinese Side: MEA
The situation that we have seen since last 6 months has been a result of the actions of the Chinese side which has sought to effect a unilateral change in status along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh, says MEA spokesperson.
We’ve taken note of Chinese side’s statement that it observes ‘strictly agreements between two sides and is committed to resolving border issue through dialogue and safeguarding peace and tranquility’ in border areas. We expect that Chinese side will match its words with actions.
These actions are in violation of the bilateral agreements and protocol on ensuring peace and tranquillity along LAC in India-China border areas. The core issues, as I mentioned last week remains that both sides need to strictly follow various bilateral agreements and protocols, says MEA.
India enjoys long-standing relations with Russia. Our relations with Russia stand on their own merit… India does not see the Indo-Pacific region as a strategy, says MEA on Russian foreign minister’s remark ‘West adopting policy to engage India in ‘anti-China games’.
