” “China’s position on the eastern sector of the China-India boundary, or the southern part of China’s Tibet region, is consistent and clear. The Chinese government has never recognised the so-called ‘Arunachal Pradesh’ and is firmly opposed to the Indian politician’s visit to the southern part of China’s Tibet region as it violated China’s territorial sovereignty, undermined stability of the border area, sabotaged political mutual trust, and violated relevant bilateral agreement”, said Geng Shuang, the spokesperson of Chinese Foreign ministry.
The India-China border dispute is over 3488-km-long area. it is also known as Line of Actual Control (LAC).
