In his meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, on the sidelines of the G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar stressed the need for expediting the process of return of Indian students to China to attend classes on an early date.

EAM reiterated that the India-China relationship is best served by observing the three mutuals - mutual respect, mutual sensitivity and mutual interests.

Jaishankar recalled his meeting with State Councillor Wang Yi in Delhi in March 2022 and reviewed the progress of some key issues discussed then, which included the return of students.

Notably, the Indian students pursuing medicine from Chinese Universities are unable to return to China to attend classes. In order to facilitate this, Jaishankar met with Wang Yi on March 25.

Earlier in April, the Chinese side had expressed its willingness to consider facilitating the return of Indian students to China on a need-assessed basis, said the Indian Embassy in China.

On Thursday ahead of the G20 FM Meeting, the two Ministers also exchanged perspectives on other regional and global developments. Foreign Minister Wang Yi appreciated India's support during China's BRICS Chairship this year and assured China's support for India's upcoming G20 and SCO Presidency. They agreed to remain in touch, said the MEA release.
