There were 45 years of calm and reliable border administration. However, the scenario at the Line of Actual Control arose as a result of China's breach of treaties.
On February 19, the Minister of External Affairs, S. Jaishankar said that following Beijing's violation of boundary accords, India's ties with China were in an "extremely challenging moment". He added, "The status of the frontier will decide the quality of the friendship."
Attending the Munich Security Conference (MSC) 2022 Panel Discussion today, Jaishankar stated that India has an issue with China. "And the issue is that 45 years was peaceful for 45 years, there was consistent frontier control, and there were no military deaths on the frontier from 1975," he added in answer to the host's query.
"That shifted as we had pacts not to move military units to the Line of Actual Control, which we term the border," Jaishankar explained.
"The status of the boundary will naturally dictate the quality of the connection," he remarked.
"Ties with China are undergoing through a tough mode right now," S. Jaishankar stated, claiming that India's interactions with the West were good well before June 2020.
The Indian and Chinese forces clashed in eastern Ladakh after a severe conflict in the Pangong lake regions, so both sides steadily increased their engagement by bringing in tens of thousands of soldiers and heavy equipment.
Following a violent battle in the Galway Valley on June 15, 2020, tensions rose.
Jaishankar took part in an Indo-Pacific panel discussion at the MSC, which was intended at debating the rising tensions involving NATO members and Russia over Ukraine.
