India, China NSAs to meet next week; NSG membership likely on agenda


Beijing, October 29: Security Advisers of and China will meet next week to discuss measures to improve bilateral ties which are strained by differences over a host of issues, including India's admission into NSG and Beijing's attempts to block UN ban on JeM Chief Masood Azhar.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi will meet in Hyderabad in November first week for informal dialogue on the state of bilateral relations, especially the irritants bedevilling the development of ties, officials said.

Besides blocking India's admission into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), China had put a second technical hold on India's move to bring about a UN ban on Azhar. Also India has been protesting over the USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which is being laid through the Pakistan-occupied (PoK).

While India is concerned over the Pakistan factor creeping into India-China relations making the bilateral ties more complex, China, too, is airing its apprehensions over the movement to boycott Chinese goods in India as well as the visit of US Ambassador to New Delhi, Richard Verma, to Arunachal Pradesh, which it considers as Southern Tibet and India's permission to allow the Dalai Lama to visit the area.

Chinese officials say Beijing is apprehensive about India moving closer to US and Japan broadening its strategic and ties with both the countries.

Doval and Yang who are the designated Special Representatives of the India-China boundary talks, also periodically meet to discuss the whole gamut of the Sino-Indian relations.

Yang was the former foreign minister of China before he was elevated to the rank of State Councillor of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) after President Xi Jinping took over power in 2013.

In Chinese power structure, State Councillor is more powerful than the Foreign Minister on foreign policy issues.
