The two ministers held delegation-level talks in Delhi.
During talks, EAM Jaishankar said, "I think when it comes to our own relationship, you know that it is indeed something very special.
Despite the rapid changes in the world over last many decades, our relations have grown from strength to strength.
This year marks the 22nd year of our strategic partnership and 12th year of our special and privileged strategic partnership.
So, I'm sure that many of our conversations would be conducted in that spirit as very close partners." "Our countries are tied through a strategic partnership and at the heart of our partnership is the long-lived friendship between our nations and proximity of our stance on relevant international issues and our friendship.
Our bilateral, political dialogue is at its sustainable highest even amid the stringent epidemiological restrictions.
It was an honour for me to host you and your colleagues in September last year and we had BRICS' Foreign Ministers' Council and we also had bilateral and trilateral meetings," said Russian Foreign Minister.
Union External Affairs Minister, Dr S Jaishankar attended a virtual conversation, called 'Global Dialogue Series'on May 05. On current relations between India and China, he said, "The relationship is going through a very difficult phase because in violation of agreements and understandings of many years, the Chinese have deployed a very large part of the military on/close to LAC without explanation. We have been very clear with the Chinese that peace and tranquillity on the border and border areas absolutely essential to the development of our relationship. I can't have friction, bloodshed, intimidation on the borders and then say let's have a good relationship in other domains." He further said, "India and China have made some progress in some areas. We haven't come to the de-escalation part of it which will follow after disengagement is done. Last conversation with China was focused on COVID and the Chinese Foreign Minister also said the same to me. During the conversation with the Chinese Foreign Minister, I told him that the best way you could help would be to look into the difficulties being faced by some of our companies that are ordering stuff from China. After our conversation, things immediately moved."
