Beijing. Chinese President Xi Jinping has appointed senior diplomat Xu Feihong as his new ambassador to India. This appointment has been made due to the sourness in relations due to the ongoing standoff in eastern Ladakh between the armies of the two countries and an inordinate delay of 18 months. There has been no official announcement yet from China to appoint Feihong as the Chinese Ambassador to India. However, China’s Foreign Ministry has confirmed to PTI that Feihong, who was China’s ambassador to Afghanistan and Romania, will now be the country’s new ambassador to India. Feihong (60) is likely to go to New Delhi soon and take charge. He will replace veteran Chinese diplomat Sun Weidong, whose tenure ends in October 2022.

Sun had worked in the same post in Pakistan before assuming the responsibility of China’s Ambassador to India and is currently the Deputy Foreign Minister of China. He is also watching China’s policy regarding South Asia. Feihong’s appointment comes at a time when general elections are being held in India and long-term talks are going on between the two countries at the military and diplomatic levels to resolve the long-running military standoff. After the violent clash on May 5, 2020 in the Pegong Tso Lake area of ‚Äč‚Äčeastern Ladakh, relations between the two countries, except trade, have come to a standstill. After the incident in Eastern Ladakh, bilateral relations between the two countries have almost come to a standstill.

So far, 21 rounds of Corps Commander level talks have been held to resolve the military deadlock. According to the Chinese Army, both sides have agreed to withdraw troops from four points: Galwan Valley, Pangong Lake, Hot Spring and Jiannan Daban (Gogra) area. India is pressurizing China’s People’s Liberation Army to retreat from Depsang and Demchok areas. India says that relations with China cannot be normal due to the abnormal situation on the border.
