China announces Foreign Minister’s visit to India for G20 meet

The G20 Foreign Ministers meeting will be held in India on March 2 and will be attended by Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang, the Foreign Ministry stated here on Tuesday.

The Chinese Foreign Minister’s trip to India will be his first since his predecessor Wang Yi’s trip there in 2019 to attend the Special Representatives dialogue on the border mechanism.

The Special Representatives were Wang and Ajit Doval, the National Security Advisor. Foreign Minister Qin will attend the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in New Delhi, India, on March 2, at the invitation of his Indian counterpart, Minister S Jaishankar, it was announced.

Since their military stalemate in eastern Ladakh in May 2020, relations between the two nations have mostly been halted.

To end the standoff, the two nations have held 17 high-level military commander meetings.

India has insisted that peace in the border regions is a prerequisite for normalizing relations with China.

The Foreign Ministry revealed on Tuesday that Qin Gang would be traveling to India this week to attend the conference. He received an invitation from S Jaishankar, his Indian counterpart.


For more than 31 months, India and China have been involved in a protracted border stalemate in eastern Ladakh. Following the tragic battle in June 2020 in the Galwan Valley of Eastern Ladakh, the bilateral relationship experienced significant pressure.

India has insisted that the relationship cannot return to normal unless the border region is peaceful. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports that negotiations between the two nations are taking place via diplomatic and military channels. According to the ministry, both parties are concentrating on returning to some semblance of normalcy, de-escalation, and disengagement at the border.

As two armies clashed on December 9 in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh along the LAC at Yangtze, tensions between India and China grew. On December 13, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh stated in Parliament that Chinese troops attempted to “unilaterally” change the status quo in the Yangtse area, but that the Indian Army’s robust and resolute response forced them to retire.

On February 22, recommendations for disengaging in the two remaining trouble spots along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) were reviewed by the two nations in an effort to set the stage for “restoring normalcy” in their bilateral ties. A senior Indian official has not visited China in more than three years prior to this trip.
