New Delhi: There is a less chance for restoration of military relations between India and China during the forthcoming visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the country.
 
According to sources, the upcoming summit is going to take place on April 14 in Sanya of Hannan province where Manmohan Singh will meet with the Chinese premier to discuss all bilateral issues.  But, the matters related to defence will continue to be suspended until India gets a solution to the logjam in the military relation between the two countries.

According to sources, for the past eight months the military exchange between India and China has been suspended. However, China has never said that its military relation with India has turned sour.

Significantly, in July 2010 India had protested when China did not issue visa to the then Northern Command Lt General BS Jaswal because he was posted in Jammu and Kashmir. 

India strongly protested to China for issuing stapled visas to the residents of Jammu and Kashmir. During the visit of Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao to India in December last year, the government of India had made point that both the sides must address their concerns for healthy relations.
