On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping will participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization’s virtual conference.
This is the first time the two leaders will be face to face after the tension started on the Line of Actual Control in East Ladakh in May. The conference is presided over by President Vladimir Putin of Russia.
According to the newspaper Economic Times , Modi is going to attend six conferences this month. After the SCO conference, Modi will participate in the East Asia and ASEAN conference organized by Vietnam in mid-November.
On 17 November, Modi will attend the BRICS conference chaired by Russian President Vladimir Putin, after which he will attend the G-10 Conference organized by Saudi Arabia on 21-22 November.
At the end of the month, on November 30, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will participate in a meeting chaired by the President of the member countries.
The newspaper says that amid these aggressive attitude of China, through these conferences, India will have the opportunity to present itself as an important member in the supply chain of the world.
All these conferences will be held online during the Corona epidemic.
About this news, The Indian Express writes that Modi and Xi Jinping have met 18 times in the last six years. The two met for the last time at a G-20 conference organized by Saudi Arabia.
The newspaper writes that both countries are taking a tough stand on the tension on the border and in such a situation, there is little chance that there will be any talk about the border between the two leaders.
In commonly held conferences, leaders meet separately from the conference and talk on different issues, but in virtual meetings this possibility is almost nil.
According to the newspaper, the Doklam dispute, which lasted three months in 2017, was settled before the BRICS conference held in Xiamen in September 2017. The Chumar border dispute of 2014 was also resolved when the Chinese President was visiting Ahmedabad. During this, Modi talked to him.
But this time there have been eight rounds of talks between military commanders, six rounds between diplomats, and face-to-face talks between the defense ministers, national security advisors and foreign ministers of both countries, but so far disengagement and No signs of deascalation are seen.
