Wish for closer ties with India: Chinese envoy’s I-Day greeting
NEW DELHI: Chinese ambassador to India Sun Weidong on Saturday congratulated the Indian government and people on the countrys Independence Day. “Wish #China & #India, two great nations with ancient civilisation prosper together in peace and develop with closer partnership,” Sun tweeted.
Suns greetings came in the middle of the border stand-off in eastern Ladakh. The two countries have had several rounds of military and diplomatic dialogue but they are still nowhere close to resolving the issue. China has blamed India for the stalemate, saying the onus was on India to carry forward the disengagement process.
India had on Friday said that it expected the Chinese side to sincerely work with India towards the objective of complete disengagement and de-escalation and full restoration of peace and tranquility in the border areas as agreed by the special representatives. Meanwhile, Indian ambassador to China, Vikram Misri, on Saturday said that 2020 has been a very unusual year for India as it had to face the “twin challenges” of Covid-19 as well as aggression on the countrys borders.
