Interestingly Wang Yi’s surprise visit did not precede an official announcement both at home and at the Indian foreign office.

Soon after New Delhi announced another statement on Beijing’s involvement with OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) in Pakistan’s capital city, Islamabad, where Wang Yi was invited as the guest of honor, had arrived in New Delhi on Thursday evening.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi stated, “Governments and Countries that recognize themselves with such acts must realize the effect it has on one’s reputation.”

Jaishankar belongs to the alumni of St Stephen’s College, where he spoke about the Indo-China relationship over the military standoff for 2 years now.

He said, “Policies are usually backed or are deterred; therefore, Indian diplomacy has a lot of work to do for creating a foundation for such situations. Which makes our nation associate with international communities for defense up-gradation, seeking support, securing our policies with foreign bodies. Allowing India to be better prepared to manage such hostile situations.”

He further added, “India’s diplomacy goes hand-in-hand with Chinese counterparts with regards to the military standoff, May 2020 onwards. And the defense along with foreign policies are really side-by-side which shows the true worth of global understanding and support.”
