Foreign Ministry Spokesperson’s Remarks on Indian Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the East Section of the China-India Boundary
Q: It is reported that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the so-called “Arunachal Pradesh” on February 9th. What is your comment?
A: China’s position on the China-India boundary question is consistent and clear-cut. The Chinese government has never recognized the so-called “Arunachal Pradesh” and is firmly opposed to the Indian leader’s visit to the East Section of the China-India boundary. China urges the Indian side to bear in mind the common interests of the two countries (proceed from the overall situation of bilateral relations in the Chinese version), respect the interests and concerns of the Chinese side, cherish the momentum of improvement in bilateral relations, and refrain from any action that may lead to the escalation of disputes or complicate the boundary question.
