Miffed India ‘reschedules’ Chinese foreign minister’s visit

Wang Yi, Chinese Foreign Minister and State Councillor.

(TibetanReview.net, Sep04’19) – All is not all that well in Sino-India relations as Chinese Foreign Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi was asked to drop the India-leg of his upcoming international tour which will now take him only to Pakistan’s capital Islamabad and Nepal’s capital Kathmandu beginning Sep 8.

India has “rescheduled” Wang’s Sep 9 visit for talks with its national security adviser Ajit Doval. Reports cited China’s dragging of India to the UN Security Council (UNSC) over the latter’s termination of the special constitutional status for the State of Jammu & Kashmir as the likely reason for the decision.

The UNSC refused to act on the Pakistan-China move and therefore did not issue any statement on the issue but the latter still read out a statement of its position as if that was the decision of the UN body, even criticizing India for its human rights record in Kashmir.

As of now the Sep 9-10 boundary talks stand cancelled, with no new date being confirmed.

India’s has said it had some “scheduling constraints” and wanted the meeting to be rescheduled.

Doval and Wang are the designated special representatives for boundary talks between India and China. The meeting is likely to be rescheduled at a mutually convenient date, it was suggested.

And while India is currently preparing to host Chinese President Xi Jinping in the beach city of Mamallapuram in Tamil Nadu over Oct 11-13, reports say India’s Northern Army Commander, Lt. General Ranbir Singh, had postponed a scheduled visit to China in order to monitor the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
