Avoid action that might escalate situation: China

New Delhi, July 3

China has said it is in communication and negotiations with India on lowering tension along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) through military and diplomatic channels.

“No party should engage in any action that may escalate the situation,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian shortly after PM Modi arrived in Ladakh today.

In response to a question about India’s additional scrutiny of imports from China due to the recent border dispute, Zhao said, “Artificial blocks to bilateral cooperation violated the rules of the WTO and would harm India’s interests.” — TNS
