Dialogue with China not at cost of country’s dignity: Rajnath Singh

Dialogue with China not at cost of country’s dignity: Rajnath Singh”

The Government of India (GoI) has been under pressure because of China's aggressive mode in Ladakh. China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of southern Tibet while India contests it. Some reports say that Chinese soldiers have "settled" in this territory and are building bunkers.

The meeting discussed various aspects on India's response to the provocation by China at the border.

The defence minister said efforts are on to resolve the border row in eastern Ladakh.

The interview was held on completion of Narendra Modi's government's one year in office for second consecutive term.

Tensions have been running high between India and China along the LAC, with reports of physical clashes between troops across Ladakh and Sikkim.

On the questions of LAC and perceptions about it Rajnath Singh preferred to explain's China's positions and assertions at length as compare to the stand of India.

India's pride will not be hurt under any circumstances, Singh said and added that the country has been following a clear policy of maintaining good relationship with neighbouring countries. Sources said that in view of the situation, India has increased necessary equipment for patrolling in Paigang lake and protecting its territory. Asserting that the video "was not authenticated", it urged the media "not to air visuals that are likely to vitiate the current situation on the borders".

Both New Delhi and Beijing have signaled a lack of interest in Donald Trump involving himself in their affairs, after the United States president suggested he could help resolve a territorial dispute between the two nations. It should be resolved through talks at military and diplomatic levels.

"I spoke to the US Defence Secretary yesterday".

He was hopeful of diplomatic and military talks leading to a solution because the Chinese, he said, had also issued statements to that effect.

The confrontation with India "fits a broader pattern of Chinese assertiveness", said Tanvi Madan, director of the India Project at the Brookings Institution in Washington, noting that it was the fourth flare-up since China's authoritarian leader, Xi Jinping, rose to power at the end of 2012.

After the skirmishes between troops of India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, the "war" now is on Twitter where a video and picture of each other's troops being beaten up threatens to make the ongoing negotiations tough for either side. While asking China to maintain status quo at the border, India has said that the condition imposed is unacceptable. The Chinese resistance is against us completing this.

Rajnath Singh added that this chain (of events) has been there earlier also.

This isn't the first time that Trump has volunteered his services in the region. But India and China have been resolving these issues through dialogue, said he while citing Dhoklam standoff of 2017. "Ultimately, we were able to resolve the situation".
