Rajnath Singh will meet Chinese counterpart Wei Feng in Moscow



Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will not meet his Chinese counterpart Wei Feng in Moscow during the 75th Victoria Parade, as some Chinese campaign websites have suggested.


Singh will meet his Chinese counterpart amid a border tension between New Delhi and Beijing following last week's violent attack on the Galvan Valley in Ladakh, where 20 Indian soldiers have lost their lives, Chinese media reported.

Singh is currently on a three-day tour of Moscow to take part in the 75th Victory Day Parade. Tensions between India and China escalate following the Ladakh standoff.

China's defense minister will also attend Wednesday's parade.

On Tuesday, Rajnath Singh described the visit of the Russian capital between New Delhi and Moscow as a sign of 'special friendship'. "The visit to Moscow was the first foreign visit by an official delegation to India during the COVID pandemic. This is a sign of our special friendship. Despite all the difficulties of the pandemic, our bilateral relations have been good contacts at various levels." .

The 75-member Indian Army team, along with defense personnel from at least 11 countries, including China, will participate in the victory parade.

"It is a great honor to have an Indian army team march into Red Square tomorrow. Indian troops have participated in millions of combat operations and have taken massive action. Many of them have taken part in war efforts to providing assistance to the Soviets." He is part of the army, ”said Rajnath Singh.

Meanwhile, the Indo-China Border Affairs (WMCC) consultation and coordination mechanism will hold a virtual meeting on Wednesday to discuss border tensions between the two countries.

Joint Secretary-level officials on either side preside over the WMCC negotiations.

The WMCC was established in 2012 as an institutional mechanism for consultation and coordination for the maintenance of peace and tranquility in the India-China border areas, as well as to exchange ideas on strengthening communication and cooperation among their border security personnel.

India and China held talks with Corps Commander-level on Monday as both sides agreed to cancel the East Ladakh region.

Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, the commander of the Indian Army 14 Corps, and his Chinese counterpart held an 11-hour meeting at the Border Personnel Meeting Point in Moldova to ease tensions between the two countries.

During an escalation in eastern Ladakh on June 15, China's attempt to consolidate the situation has come face to face. India said the situation could be avoided if China had a higher level of compromise.

Indian conflicts have revealed that the Chinese side has killed 43 people, including the dead and seriously injured.
