Making China to come to its senses….
JAISHANKAR achieves breakthrough with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi at their Moscow meeting
1. The JOINT STATEMENT said Jaishankar and Wang agreed that both sides should take guidance from the series of consensus reached between leaders of the two countries on developing India-China relations, including not allowing differences to become disputes.
1.1. Joint Statements are issued ONLY if a consensus is built, not otherwise.
2. India and China have agreed on a five-point plan for resolving the prolonged border face-off in eastern Ladakh that included,–
2.1. abiding by all existing agreements and protocol on management of the frontier,
2.2. maintaining peace and tranquility and
2.3. avoiding any action that could escalate matters.
2.4.The two countries agreed to the plan during talks between External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Moscow on Thursday evening on the sidelines of a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meet.
2.5. ”The two foreign ministers agreed that the current situation in the border areas is not in the interest of either side. They agreed, therefore, that the border troops of both sides should continue their dialogue, quickly disengage, maintain proper distance and ease tensions,” it said
3. The Indian Army and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army(PLA) have been locked in a tense standoff in multiple areas along the Line of Actual Control(LAC) in eastern Ladakh since early May.
4. It is worth recalling here that the earlier meeting between our defence minister Rajnath Singh with his counterpart had failed to resolve the deadlock.
5. ANALYSIS–CHINA LOSES BHARAT’S TRUST BUT HANDS OVER AN INVALUABLE LESSON TO US
5.1. In the first place, the Chinese attempts to unilaterally alter the status quo at the LAC in Ladakh itself was a KNEE-JERK reactionary short sighted TACTIC of Xi Jinping.
5.2. It was born out of the sheer desperation of the Dragon on being ostracised by the Free World led by the U.S. as a direct consequence of the spread of the Wyuhan Virus.
5.3. The misadventure misfired when MODIfied Bharat’s army held firm and repulsed the slave army of the Dragon.
5.4. Xi must have retrieved his lost senses after Bharat practically banned $100 bn worth Chinese exports to india and slam shut the doors on future trade deals too.
5.5. HENCE THIS COME DOWN NOW IN MOSCOW.
5.6. But what XI CANNOT GET BACK is PM MODI’s TRUST built over five years involving two informal Summits.
5.7. The Chinese misadventure also hands out to India a solid lesson in the Fundamentals of Statecraft and that is this–
An Oligarchy which does not consider itself accountable to its own people can never become trustworthy for other countries, especially for its neighbour sharing a long border of 3488 kms!
5.8. If we do not learn from this lesson and strengthen our defences and economy to stand up to the Dragon’s future misdemeanors, it is going to cost us a price that we can never afford to bear.
