New Delhi: Foreign Minister S. Referring to China on Friday, Jaishankar said that India will not give priority to trade with any country by putting its national interests at stake. Addressing the 'CII Annual Business Summit 2024' held in the national capital, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said that India has not ruled out trade with China, but we need to be cautious. The minister said, 'We have to keep our national security in mind to continue relations with some countries.'

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 any Indian option is available then you should give it priority. This is good for national security as well as our business. The minister also said, 'If peace is disturbed in the border areas and someone has entered your area, will you do business with him?'

Jaishankar said in response to a question, 'As far as China is concerned, we will still encourage people in this country to manufacture in India, resources in India, buy from India.' He said, 'We have not completely banned people working with China, but clearly, if you have an Indian option available then we would like you to work with Indian companies. I think it's good for our national security. We hope you also think the same. This is good for your own business in the long run.'
