British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has issued a statement on China-Indian tensions. In a speech to parliament, he expressed concern over the clashes between the two neighboring countries.
According to him, the tension in East Ladakh is very serious and worrying. I hope the solution will be found through discussion. This is Britain’s first official statement on border tensions in almost a month.

Without naming India and China, Flick asked, what is Britain’s role in the conflict between the Commonwealth member states and the world’s largest democracy? In this regard, the advice of the British Prime Minister, we will encourage the two countries to sit at the negotiating table and find a solution to the problem.
