Russia “would like to avoid lack of trust between our independent partners India and China” because that can be “misused by outside powers” to create instability in the region.
Talking to ET, Russian deputy envoy to India Roman Babushkin told ET: “Moscow would like to avoid lack of trust between our independent partners India and China. Escalation between the two needs to be avoided for peace between the neighbours. The state of affairs here is a matter of regional stability, while escalation can be misused by outside powers in geopolitical purposes to create further alienation lines in the region.”
Expressing satisfaction that India and China used Moscow platform to hold dialogue on the sidelines of SCO foreign ministers meet, Babushkin said
