Bengaluru: External Affairs Minister of India S Jaishankar said that India-China relations cannot be normal unless the border situation is and added that if China disturbs the peace and tranquillity in border areas, it will impact the relations further.
“We have maintained our position that if China disturbs the peace and tranquillity in border areas, it will impact our relations. Our relationship is not normal, it cannot be normal as the border situation is not normal,” EAM S Jaishankar said in Bengaluru on the India-China issue, ANI reported.
Jaishankar also said that the big problem is the border situation and the Indian military has been holding on to the ground.
“We have made substantial progress in pulling back from places where we were very close to the LOC,” he added.
Moreover, S Jaishankar while speaking on the Belt and Road Initiative noted, “There was a violation of our territorial integrity and sovereignty, the fact that third country is doing things on sovereign Indian territory occupied by another country.”
