The Indian embassy in China reported on June 23,2022 that India and China had discussed the return of thousands of Indian students who had been left stranded at home for two years as a result of Beijing's COVID-19 bans and the restoration of direct flights that had been halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The discussions between Indian Ambassador to China Pradeep Kumar Rawat and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi included the contentious subject of the return of the Indian students.
