1962 conflict with China significantly damaged India’s standing at world stage: Jaishankar

NEW DELHI: India’s position at world stage seemed assured but the 1962 conflict with China significantly damaged the country’s standing, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Thursday.

Delivering the fourth Ramnath Goenka memorial lecture, he also said the Simla agreement of 1972 resulted in a revanchist Pakistan continuing problems in Jammu and Kashmir.

In his address, Jaishankar touched upon a variety of issues while giving a run down of India’s external engagement over the last few decades. (AGENCIES)
