India's Jaishankar will never allow any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo along its borders

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar stated on Tuesday, in a veiled allusion to China, that India will never allow any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo, and that any posture that deviates from established understandings will elicit its own replies. When it comes to security, India will do whatever it takes to safeguard national well-being, Jaishankar said at an event commemorating the Modi government’s eight years in power. He stated that India will overcome historical hesitations and will not allow anyone to have a veto over its decisions. India is also looking forward to “joining the Nuclear Suppliers Group and eliminating political barriers that are detrimental to global interests,” according to the External Affairs Minister.

We’ve overcome the hesitations of history and won’t allow anyone a veto on our choices,” he added. India and China have held several rounds of diplomatic and military talks following the standoff in April-May 2020 due to the actions of the Chinese Army and there has been disengagement from areas along the Line of Actual Control but some friction points remain.

He said New Delhi acknowledges the role of trusted partners who work to help keep India safe and secure every day. “Our borders also need safeguarding and we’ll never accept any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo. A posture that departs from established understandings will evoke its own responses,” he said. “When it comes to security, we’ll do what it takes to ensure national well-being. I acknowledge the role of trusted partners who work to help keep India safe and secure every day.

Jaishankar also said Indian Foreign Policy thinking is displaying greater conceptual and operational clarity. He said India looks forward to taking initiatives on global concerns that are truly consequential and referred to the International Solar Alliance. He also talked about Vaccine Maitri and India going the extra mile to help its neighbours. “We look forward to joining Nuclear Suppliers Group overcoming political impediments that are against global interest; taking initiatives on global concerns that are truly consequential. International Solar Alliance that we’ve collated now has 106 members,” the minister said

“Indian Foreign Policy thinking is displaying greater conceptual and operational clarity…Whether during COVID or current economic challenges, India has gone extra mile for its neighbours and will continue to do so. We count Vaccine Maitri as one of our key achievements. We supplied Made in India COVID vaccines to 98 countries. Our medical personnel are making contributions abroad in these crucial times,” he added.
