China urges India to refrain from raising tension on border

BEIJING, October 14 (INP): China doesn’t recognize the so-called “Ladakh Union Territory” illegally set up by India or the “Arunachal Pradesh”, and opposes infrastructure building aimed at military contention in disputed border areas.

This was stated by Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry at a press conference.

” Based on the consensus reached by the two sides recently, neither side should take any action that might complicate the situation at the border region, so that bilateral efforts to ease tension will not be undermined.

For a while, the Indian side has been stepping up infrastructure building and military deployment along the border with China. This is the root cause of tensions.

We urge the Indian side to earnestly implement the consensus reached by the two sides, refrain from taking actions that will complicate the situation, and take concrete measures to safeguard peace and tranquility along the border,” he added.

Replaying a question, Zhao Lijian said,, ” China adheres to the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and never interferes in the internal affairs of other countries.

We uphold multilateralism and are committed to maintaining an international system with the United Nations at its core and an international order based on international law.
We adhere to the rule of law and have joined almost all inter-governmental international organizations and international conventions.
We oppose bullying and advocate dialogue instead of conflict, consultation instead of intimidation and win-win outcomes instead of zero-sum game. China has always been a staunch guardian of international fairness and justice.”
