Technically, the conflict situation consists of actions such as the construction of fortifications, clashes between the parties on patrol, the laying of mines, airstrikes and some provocative political actions. However, there were no further details on the five points of the tripartite note issued in the early hours of Friday. While both sides have talked about a rapid withdrawal, the five points do not explicitly speak of a definitive de-escalation or a re-establishment of the status quo ante. China was the first country to issue a press release after the meeting. « After a thorough and in-depth discussion, the two sides reached a five-point consensus on the current situation, » the Chinese Foreign Ministry said. A combination of all these factors, which indicate a decrease in the country`s smart power, has allowed China to take aggressive action within the LAC. China has not been able to achieve its objectives, either politically or militarily, because of India`s firmness and determination. This will certainly reflect the image of Xi Jinping`s Iron Man. It is interesting to note that Xi wishes to lay out his achievements at the centenary celebrations of the Communist Party of China (COC) in 2021 and the 20th Communist Party Congress, a decisive five-year event of the Communist Party scheduled for 2022. « The Chinese side stands ready to support a strengthened dialogue between border forces on both sides to resolve specific issues.
The Chinese side will remain in contact with the Indian side through diplomatic and military channels and will work to restore peace and tranquility in the border regions, » the press said. Wang referred to other areas of discussion, including the need to « ensure the stability of all relations and maintain mutual trust, » even if the border situation becomes difficult. Wang stressed that China and India, as two fast-rising major developing countries, now need cooperation, not confrontation; and mutual trust, not mistrust. Mr. Jaishankar stressed the need for a « complete withdrawal of troops » at all shipper`s posts in order to avoid future « unfortunate incidents ». He also stated that « the final arrangement of the deployment of troops to their permanent posts and the gradual cessation of the process must be developed by military commanders. » New Delhi: After the meeting of foreign ministers in Moscow, the Secretary of State and the two countries announced that they had obtained five points of consensus, including instructions to the border forces to continue the dialogue, withdraw quickly and keep their distance, and the need for further confidence-building measures.
