Central India’s Strategic Response to China: Ensuring Equilibrium and Mutual Respect

2 min read

India’s External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, stated on Saturday that India is facing a complex challenge from China, and the Narendra Modi government has taken steps to prevent any unilateral changes in the border areas. This challenge has been evident in the border regions over the past three years, and both countries need to find a balance in their relationship, but it must not be one-sided.

If peace and tranquillity between the two nations are disrupted, it will have an impact on their relationship, said the minister during a talk on “Modi’s India: A Rising Power” at Anant National University. Jaishankar highlighted the challenge posed by China, particularly referring to the incursions in eastern Ladakh.

Efforts have been made to prevent any attempts to alter the status quo in the border areas, and both countries need to find a mutual equilibrium, based on respect, sensitivity, and shared interests. Jaishankar emphasized the importance of mutual respect and understanding in fostering a positive relationship with China.

Under Prime Minister Modi, India has focused on strengthening relationships with neighboring countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan, enhancing connectivity through various means. India’s engagement in the Indo-Pacific region and collaborations with countries like the United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates demonstrate a proactive approach to global affairs.

Thinking beyond the immediate future, India is laying the foundation for a strong global presence under PM Modi’s leadership, with a rise comparable to that of China.
