On the side of the G20, Foreign Affairs Minister S Jaishankar stated on Thursday that his discussions with his counterpart Qin Gang at their initial meeting focused on current challenges to bilateral ties, particularly peace and tranquillity in the border areas.

Jaishankar described India and China ties as “abnormal” in the context of challenges, especially the current state in the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and the two sides need to address “real problems”, he said.
Following the horrific clash at Galwan Valley in June 2020, which resulted in the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese soldiers, India-China relations are at their lowest point in six decades.
Since June 2020, India and China have clashed several times over the unidentified border area across the Himalayas.
Indian authorities said that China had violated the border agreements, which has led to the provocation action in the border areas.
Several bilateral and trilateral meetings have been conducted between the two sides, but no solid results exist.
In the G20 sideline meeting, Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar asked his Chinese counterpart to concentrate on the reals problems and the border issues and discuss them candidly. 
However, The tensions between India and China have been growing since the Galwan Valley conflict in June 2020, and China is unwilling to address the current border issues.
