New Delhi, May 21

In a firm response, New Delhi has rejected Beijing’s suggestions that its troops had crossed the border and instead maintained Chinese troops had recently undertaken activity hindering India’s normal patrolling patterns.

‘WE ARE COMMITTED TO PEACE’

Indian side remains firmly committed to working for the common objective of maintenance of peace and tranquillity in border areas.

Anurag Srivastava, MEA Spokesperson

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) asserted India’s “deep commitment” to safeguarding country’s sovereignty and security but said it would address all such issues on a direct basis with China.

“Any suggestion that Indian troops had undertaken activity across the LAC in the western sector or the Sikkim sector is not accurate. Indian troops are fully familiar with the alignment of the LAC in the India-China border areas and abide by it scrupulously,” said MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava.

Maintaining that improvement of India-China ties hinged on peace and tranquillity in border areas, he pointed to several bilateral mechanisms to resolve such situations. — TNS
