On the 60th anniversary of India-China relations, the ties still remain complex, suspicious, and uncertain. From border disputes to India’s dejection in China’s involvement in PoK, both countries have remained strained over the years. But the recent high-level meeting was highly optimistic, where they agreed upon broadening the bilateral connections in economy and trade, says Kaul. At the same time, the envoys have realized the complexities of the border disputes and appointed special representatives to address it on a long-term basis. Both countries have also appealed to the media to desist from exaggerated criticisms which could cause mutual harm.
