Japan agrees to continue dialogue to resolve first defense ministers’ meeting in China-India border military conflict September 5 at 12:22 p.m.
In June, in the disputed zone between China and India, the defense ministers of the two countries met for the first time about the conflict between the two countries’ forces, which resulted in deaths, and that skirmishes continued since then, and ad agree to continue dialogue to resolve the issue while asserting each other’s position.
In june, 20 Indian troops were killed in clashes between the two sides in a disputed area on the border between China and India, and skirmishes have continued in some areas since late last month.
In response to this situation, China’s Defense Minister Liu He and India’s Defense Minister Shin held their first meeting since the clashes occurred in Moscow on April 4.
According to China’s Ministry of Defense, Defense Minister Liu criticized “the cause of the border tension is very clear and all responsibility is on the Indian side.”
On that basis, he said, “Both sides should resolve the issue through dialogue and make efforts to calm the status quo as soon as possible in order to maintain peace and stability in the border region.”
According to Indian media and others, Defense Minister Singh protested that “china’s military has attempted to change the status quo” and stressed that it was necessary to continue dialogue and resolve the issue in the future.
However, many of the approximately 4000 kilometer borders between the two countries have not been established, and it is unclear whether the situation will be resolved in the future.
