New Delhi: Foreign Minister S Jaishankar met China’s Wang Yi on Friday at the Hyderabad House in Delhi.

This is the first visit by the Chinese foreign minister since tensions arose at the border of the two countries in 2020.

In a tweet, S Jaishankar shared a picture of the two of them together and wrote: “Greeted Chinese FM Wang Yi at Hyderabad House. Our discussions commence shortly.- (sic)”

Ahead of the talks with his Chinese counterpart, S Jaishankar on Thursday had said: “Few would have anticipated … the turn that India’s relations with China have taken in the last two years. Any prudent policy therefore backs its posture with capabilities and deterrence. A big responsibility of Indian diplomacy, therefore, is to create the widest set of options for such contingencies.”

The talks also come as Russia’s offensive in Ukraine completes a month.

The two countries have held over a dozen rounds of talks since June 2020 clash. Thousands of troops remain on duty on border sides amid tensions.
