On Thursday, the first official meeting since the Doklam has stand-off became the public between the top Indian and the Chinese officials , national security adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval met the state councillor Yang Jiechi here and has offers him the most possibility of the serious diplomatic efforts for the de-escalate of the confrontation.
Yang, who acts as the Chinese state councillor also overseeing the foreign affairs occupies a powerful and the influential position in the state council, is a nominee for the India-China special representative level dialogue with the NSA Doval.
It is an Indications on how the bilateral meeting went on Thursday could be stabilized by the commentary released by the China’s official Xinhua news agency which is being sent out of the conciliatory signal just before Doval is to meet the Chinese president Xi Jinping on Friday. The news agency spoke of the need on the enhance mutual trust between the two countries because they are “not the born rivals“. The comments published officially by the Xinhua news agency made a very strong plea to avoid the possibility of a war. “ the Most economies, which also includes those in the West, will also find themselves negatively affected by an India-China war in the globalised and the intertwined world today as it is said. In Delhi, the Indian government reminded the China of the agreements on the peace and the tranquility that go back in 1993.
Yang also held a separate meetings with the security officials of three other countries on the sidelines of the security dialogue of the BRICS nations.
He also discussed the issues related to concerning bilateral relations, the international and the regional issues and many affairs with the visiting security officials according to the the official Xinhua news agency.
The remarks were a contrast on the hectoring tone in the comments marks in publications like the Global Times that are seen to reflect the views of the government. The China’s official spokespersons have accused India of the trespassing into the Chinese territory , ignoring India’s protests which will have the face-off near the Sikkim-Tibet-Bhutan trijunction has been caused by the unilateral attempts by the to alter their ground position.

The recent border issue between the two countries shows a lack of strategic trust on the Indian side,“ Xinhua said. It is not the China but it have a set of problems common to all the developing countries like the corruption, a lack of quality education and the healthcare that is holding India back.
“India must understand that China wishes what’s good for the Indian people and would love to see a strong India standing shoulder by shoulder with China,“ Xinhua, which reflects the government’s thinking said, giving an emotional touch to the vexed relationship. “Instead of being the rivals, India and the China have much more common ground, common interests and the common aspirations. Both as the developing countries, the two need to work together on this important issues like the fighting climate change, protectionism and the financial privileges of Washington,“ Xinhua said.
Doval is in Beijing to attend the dialogue of the BRICS nations. “Hopefully , wisdom will guide the two countries to the common prosperity ,“ it said, adding that “Both China and the India need to enhance the communication and the nurture trust between them… the two are not the born rivals and that the harboring ill will be against each other is very much dangerous,“ it added.
