Foreign Minister S Jaishankar attended a meeting with the Foreign Ministers of China and Russia amidst the escalation in India-China relations. After the military skirmish in Galvan Valley, the India-China Foreign Minister is face to face for the first time through video conferencing.

India and China face to face after tension over LAC, Jaishankar said - respect for international law is necessary.


In the meeting, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said that the world's major voices should be heard in every way. Respecting international law, recognizing the interests of partners, supporting multilateralism, and promoting goodness are the only ways to create a sustainable world order.

He said that this special meeting reiterates our belief in the time-tested principle of international relations, but the challenge today is to practice it equally, not concepts and norms.

The talks come after Russia's insistence on a confrontation and fears of escalation following a violent clash between Indian and Chinese troops on June 15 in the Galvan valley in eastern Ladakh. India was initially ready to attend this RIC meeting, but after the request of Russia, the host of the conference, it agreed to join it.

On June 17, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar told Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that it was a pre-planned conspiracy by the Chinese army and would have a serious impact on bilateral relations. Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava confirmed on Thursday that Jaishankar will attend the RIC meeting. He said that the meeting will discuss issues related to the Covid-19 epidemic and challenges related to global security and financial stability.
