    China and India reached a five-point consensus aimed at de-escalating their recent border tensions at a Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting in Moscow last Thursday. Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and India’s External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar concurred in a joint statement that the current situation at the border is not in the interest of either side. The consensus comes after the two sides witnessed a deadly clash in June, and just last week, warning shots were fired for the first time in 45 years. At the same meeting, Wang Yi also expressed China’s willingness to expand cooperation with SCO members in the fight against COVID-19. What is the five-point consensus? How will border tensions affect China and India’s cooperation in the fight against COVID-19? Guests: DING YIFAN Senior fellow, State Council Development Research Center PROF.
