Arunachal Pradesh does not belong to India : China

China spews venom yet again !

Opposes Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part, India responds !

Editorial comment

India needs to become aggressive to shut China’s mouth forever !

New Delhi – In yet again unwarranted and bizarre statement, the spokesperson of China’s Foreign Ministry, Zhao Lijian, has opposed Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh. He said, ‘We do not recognise the illegally created Arunachal Pradesh. We oppose Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu’s visit to the State’.

He has claimed that Arunachal Pradesh is part of Southern Tibet and that of China. India has also responded to China’s opposition. India’s statement read, ‘We heard the statement coming from an official spokesman in China. We do not accept that. Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India. Indian politicians can regularly visit any State, including Arunachal Pradesh. It is incomprehensible that China opposes an Indian leader’s visit to a State in India’.

Apart from Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual figure, former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also visited Arunachal Pradesh in 2014 and China had made statements opposing the visit even then.
