No plans to cancel China visit: Salman Khurshid
New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Tuesday said that as of now there was no plans to cancel his visit to Beijing in wake of Chinese incursion in Ladakh.
He, however, appeared to keep his options open saying "one week is a long time in politics".
"Can I cancel my visit? Government has to decide. There is no such decision and there is no reason we should do that but you know one week is a long time in politics, so lets move forward," he told reporters outside Parliament.
Khurshid is scheduled to travel to Beijing on May 9 in connection with preparations for Chinese Premier Li Keqiang`s visit here next month.
Samajwadi Party had yesterday objected to the Minister`s visit to China with party leader and former defence minister Mulayam Singh Yadav accusing the government of acting in a "cowardly" manner on the Chinese incursion issue.
Khurshid expressed confidence that the stand-off between the two countries will be resolved amicably through talks.
"I would like to say it once again that let talks take place. We have a system which we have developed it over the years and have strengthened it and whenever any such development takes place, it is solved within that system. I am confident that a solution will emerge out of this," he said.
