Beijing, September 29

China on Tuesday voiced its opposition to India undertaking infrastructure development for military purposes in the border areas of Ladakh. It said both countries should avoid any activity that might complicate the situation upsetting the consensus reached between them to ease the situation.

“China has not recognised Ladakh Union Territory (UT) ‘illegally’ set up by the Indian side,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a press briefing while replying to a question by a journalist that India was prioritising construction of high-altitude road network on its border with China in the Ladakh region. “We are opposed to conducting infrastructure development for military purposes in the border area,” Wang said. — PTI
