Referring to China, he said that we will continue to encourage our people for self-reliance and self-reliance. External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said, ‘Although we have not stopped people from working with China, but if there is an Indian option available, then you should give it priority. This is good for national security as well as for our business. The minister also said, ‘If there is a breach of peace in the border areas, and someone has entered your area, will you do business with him?’
