During an online conversation with former ambassador Gautam Bambawale, Pune International Centre, the external affairs minister further said that India and China had been developing cooperation in areas such as trade, tourism and societal activity since the late 1980s because of peace and tranquility in the border areas and this year's border standoff had "deeply disturbed" the situation.

Jaishankar said, "It's not our position that we should solve the boundary... question. We understand that's a very complicated, very difficult issue. There have been many negotiations on this at different levels over a different period. That's a very high bar for a relationship."

India and China has currently entered its sixth month of the standoff which has taken the ties between the two nations to a new low, with troops firing warning shots at friction points the first time guns have been used along the LAC since 1975. Multiple rounds of talks have also failed to yield any significant result in defusing the tensions and now the Indian side has prepared itself for long term deployment in the high mountainous region
