Moscow. In Russia, Foreign Minister Jaishankar spoke openly on the deteriorating relations with China on Thursday.

Jaishankar has arrived here on a three-day visit. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday held talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and reviewed progress in space, nuclear, energy and defense cooperation between the two friendly nations.
increased concern about relationships
He said that the relationship with China has been stable for the last 40 years. There was tension between the two but the relationship is generally good. For the past one year, due to the border dispute, there has been increased concern about the relationship between the two. China has not respected the agreements on its side on the border. This has eroded the trust between the two.
The standoff between the two countries has escalated since the bloody conflict between India and China in eastern Ladakh in May last year. India has been continuously trying to put pressure on China to withdraw troops mainly at Hot Springs, Gogra and Depsang.
Nuclear arms race rejected
Jaishankar has dismissed a question about the possibility of a nuclear arms race between the two countries. He said that the development of China’s nuclear program is far more dynamic than that of India. This statement of the Foreign Minister is being considered important because Russia-China are said to be very close at the economic and ideological level.
