"The two countries should help each other to accomplish their respective goals and light up each other", he said.
The reason for the stand-off between troops of India and China on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh remains a subject of conjecture among foreign policy experts in the absence of any authoritative commentary from both governments.
Indian media has released pictures in which it can be seen that the Chinese Army now occupies areas previously controlled by India. "The realisation of "Dragon and Elephant dancing together" is the only right choice for China and India, which serves the fundamental interests of our two countries and two peoples", he added.
Several areas along the LAC in Ladakh and North Sikkim have witnessed major military build-up by both the Indian and Chinese armies recently, in a clear signal of escalating tension and hardening of respective positions by the two sides even two weeks after they were engaged in two separate face-offs. "We are capable of resolving the issues properly though dialogue and consultation", he said, confirming reports that the diplomatic efforts were on to ease the border tensions.
In a recent statement, India's external affairs ministry blamed China for provoking the military escalation. At the same time, it said, India was deeply committed to protect its sovereignty and security.
"China hopes to develop itself and India as well".
Moreover, Mr. Trump's offer comes at a time when the USA and China themselves have tensions between them on several fronts.
The world's second-largest economy has been facing criticism from the U.S., Europe and Australia for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic that was first reported in China's Hubei province.
Sources had further said that while the Chinese soldiers maintained that they remained within their borders, they did, however, believe that 3 km within India's perception of the LAC was crossed.
The standoff was triggered by India's construction of roads and air strips in the region as it competes with China's spreading Belt and Road initiative, involving infrastructure development and investment in dozens of countries, Indian observers said on Tuesday. It has completed 74 strategic roads along the eastern border, with plans afoot to finish 20 more by next year.
"The Chinese have been expanding presence in this region for a long time, yet after all these decades, India hasn't found a way to deal with China's gradual expansion", said Phunchok Stobdan, former Indian diplomat and author of the Great Game in the Buddhist Himalayas. "A war was fought between India and China in 1962 and again, India is resorting to aggressive posturing in the same territory", he said. "The issue is why is China doing this and why now?"
