Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi is expected to visit New Delhi shortly. This is being seen by some as an overture by the Chinese to rebuild fences with India. Some opinion writers have stated that India and China need to work together again. China is the current Chair of BRICS for 2022 and is exploring the possibility of a physical summit later this year.
Since the summer of 2020, when China moved large numbers of troops to Eastern Ladakh in an attempt to change the status quo on the ground in that sector, there have only been meetings between army commanders of India and China aimed at resolving these issues and some meetings between the foreign ministers of India and China in third countries. PM Modi has attended a few summit level meetings where China’s President Xi Jinping was present – but only virtually. There have been no other exchanges between India and China over these past two years.
