US President Donald Trump has again offered mediation on the tension between India and China on the outskirts.
Trump said that if he thinks I can help, then I am ready for mediation. The US President also said that he had spoken to PM Modi on the ‘big confrontation’ with China. Trump claimed that PM Modi’s mood was not good about the tension between the two countries. Trump said that India is not happy about the whole issue and perhaps China is not happy either.
Trump said these things to reporters at the Oval on Thursday. The US President said that there is a situation of a major confrontation between India and China.
On the question of an Indian journalist, Trump said, “I like your Prime Minister very much. He is very gentle. “The US President said on Indo-China tension,” There is a situation of big confrontation between India and China. Both countries have a population of 40 billion each. Both have a very strong army. India is not happy and perhaps China is not happy either. I spoke to PM Modi and his mood is not good about what is going on with China.
On Wednesday, President Trump had tweeted and offered to mediate on the tension on the border between the two countries. Trump had said that he was ready for mediation. When Trump was asked about the arbitration offer, he said, “I can do it.” If they think it will help, then I can do that.
On the offer of Trump’s arbitration, India said on Thursday that negotiations are on with China for a peaceful resolution of the deadlock on the outskirts. India had responded very cautiously to Trump’s offer. Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava had said, “We are in touch with China for a peaceful solution”.
There has been no response from China’s foreign ministry to Trump’s offer, but China’s official newspaper Global Times says that both countries do not need this kind of help.
According to news agency PTI, on Wednesday, China had said that the situation on the border with India was ‘completely stable and under control’.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in a press conference that both countries have the appropriate mechanism to resolve the issues through dialogue and consultation.
Lijian had said, “We are committed to protecting our regional sovereignty and peace and stability in the border areas. Now the situation on the Sino-India border is completely stable and in control. We can resolve the issue through thorough dialogue and consultation Are able.
Why tension on the border with China
Tensions arose between India and China over the Galvan Valley in Aksai China when India alleged that the Chinese army had set up some tents along the side of Galvan Valley.
The Galvan Valley is located near the Indo-China border between Ladakh and Aksai China. Here the Line of Actual Control (LAC) separates China from India. This valley extends to southern Xinjiang in China and Ladakh in India.
After this, India increased the deployment of the army there. On the other hand, China alleged that India is doing illegal construction related to security near Galvan Valley. Earlier on May 9, there was a clash between the Indian and Chinese forces in the Nathu La sector of North Sikkim. At that time, Chinese army helicopters were seen near LAC in Ladakh. After this, the Indian Air Force also started patrolling Sukhoi and other fighter aircraft.
Several rounds of talks at the division commander level to end the ongoing deadlock between India and China have failed.
According to The Hindu newspaper, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held a high-level review meeting on the current situation along the Line of Actual Control and the ongoing deadlock with China.
