WASHINGTON, DC, 4 August 2020

A border dispute between India and China – which turned deadly in June when troops of the two sides clashed – should not dominate relations between the nuclear-armed Asian powers, the Chinese ambassador to the United States said on Tuesday.

“I don’t think this issue should dominate in relations between China and India, and I don’t think this is the view of our Indian friends,” Ambassador Cui Tiankai said in an appearance at the Aspen Security Forum.
