Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi is expected to visit India later this month, news agency Economic Times said in a report. The visit from Yi comes at a time when relations between both nations have deteriorated following the border conflict which erupted in 2020 in eastern Ladakh on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) due to Chinese aggression.
This will be the first ministerial visit between both nations since the Chinese troops clashed with Indian forces on the LAC in eastern Ladakh and other friction points. The visit also comes after the 15th round of commander corp level discussions between both sides where both agreed to amicably resolve disputes.
Yi and his counterpart Jaishankar in several forums have highlighted that relations between both nations have deteriorated. Yi earlier this month said that both nations should focus on ‘mutual success instead of adversaries of mutual attrition’. However, union minister of external affairs S Jaishankar has highlighted that China is not adhering to existing agreements related to the border which led to the low point in bilateral relations.
