India-China Border Clash: German Ambassador Philipp Ackermann has said that the skirmish between Indian and Chinese soldiers on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh is a matter of concern and international borders should not be violated. Ackermann said this in an interview. Ackermann also said that India and Germany have agreed to remain in contact at the highest level on the issue of China and Russia after German Foreign Minister Annalena Bayerbock's visit to India last week.

We are more dependent on China: Germany

When he was asked a question about the free trade agreement between India and the European Union, he said, Germany needs this FTA. This will completely change our trade behavior towards India. Right now we are more dependent on China. We have to increase trade with other countries as well. Unfortunately, India is not at the same level of priority as it should be. He said that from the point of view of population and other aspects, there is no country other than India which can compete with China. People still look to Vietnam and Malaysia. I don't know why they do this? Perhaps behind this are the problems related to the protectionist environment and regulations in India.

Concerned over Tawang clash: Ackermann

On the other hand, regarding the Tawang clash, he said that I do not have complete information about it. But we are worried about it. There should never be any violation on the international border. "We see this Russian aggression in Europe every day as a form of war, when it comes to refugees, when it comes to dealing with the Russians, among other levels," he said. . He further said that I do not have complete information about the Tawang clash. But violence is happening there. Till now violence was happening in western countries but now it is happening in eastern countries also. it concerns. There should be no violence.
