Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently stated that India is managing the complexities in its relationship with China even as it seeks to make progress within the framework of a broader developmental partnership.
She said, “We continue to manage the complexities in the India-China relationship even as we seek to make progress within the framework of a broader developmental partnership.”
India and China were engaged in a 73-day standoff last year over Beijing's attempt to build a road close to India's narrow Chicken Neck area connecting the North Eastern states.
The standoff ended in August last after Chinese troops stopped the road construction at Doklam. However, the area of the stand-off is also claimed by Bhutan.
