PM Modi urges urgent addressal of India-China border situation

PTC News Desk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized the urgency of addressing the India-China border situation to rectify the existing "abnormality" in bilateral interactions, stressing the significance of the relationship between the two nations. In an interview with Newsweek magazine based in the United States, PM Modi underscored the importance of stable India-China relations not only for the two countries but for the entire world.

Expressing his belief in the need for prompt action to resolve the prolonged border situation, PM Modi conveyed his hopes for restoring peace through positive engagement between India and China. He emphasized that stable and peaceful relations between the two nations are crucial not only for regional stability but also for global peace.


The Prime Minister acknowledged the sharp decline in India-China relations in 2020 following clashes between their troops in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh, resulting in casualties on both sides. The incident led to intensive diplomatic and military dialogues at the highest levels.

PM Modi also touched upon the strained India-Pakistan relations, particularly in the aftermath of the 2019 Pulwama attack, which claimed the lives of 40 Indian soldiers and was linked to militants from across the border. Despite the challenges, he expressed India's commitment to fostering peace, security, and prosperity in the region, free from terrorism and violence.

Regarding Pakistan's internal affairs, specifically the imprisonment of its former Prime Minister Imran Khan, PM Modi declined to comment, reaffirming India's stance of non-interference in the internal matters of neighboring countries.
