Extracts from Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying’s Regular Press Conference on October 9, 2017
Q: Over the weekend, the Indian defense minister visited the Nathula pass in the Sikkim section of the China-India boundary and had friendly interactions with the Chinese soldiers. What is your comment?
A: The Sikkim sector of China-India boundary has been delimited by the historical treaty of 1890, and the Nathula pass has been the best witness testifying to this fact. The Chinese side is willing to jointly uphold peace and tranquility in the border areas with the Indian side on the basis of observing historical treaties and the relevant agreements and accords between the two sides.
