'Peace in border areas essential': EAM S Jaishankar holds meet with Chinese counterpart
New Delhi: India and China have agreed that solving the border row should be prioritised as "a prolongation of the existing situation was not in the interest of either side", the government said today in a statement after a meeting between Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi. "...It was visibly impacting the relationship in a negative manner," the government said in the statement, referring to the border situation.
Mr Jaishankar and Wang discussed "outstanding issues" along the Line of Actual Control in the meeting in Tajikistan that lasted an hour. Both also agreed on calling a meeting between senior military commanders from both sides.
