Border troop pullback needed for better ties: India tells China

India has told China that their bilateral relations will only develop when both countries pull their troops from the disputed regions of Himalayan border, Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said. He discussed the possibility of both sides when he met his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, in a regional conference today.

“Discussed disengagement in our border areas. Underlined that progress in this regard is essential for restoration of peace and tranquillity, which is the basis for development of bilateral ties,” Jaishankar tweeted.
