Extracts from Foreign Ministry Spokesperson’s Regular Press Conference
Bloomberg: India has redirected at least 50,000 troops to its border with China. This is according to a story from Bloomberg citing people familiar with the matter. According to some of those people, that puts the troops at 200,000 focused on the border, an increase of around 40% over last year. Do you have any comment?
Wang Wenbin: The situation at China-India border maintains general stability, and the two sides are resolving the boundary issue through negotiation. Against such background, the words and deeds of relevant important military and government officials, and military deployments should be conducive to deescalating and cooling down the situation, and to enhancing mutual trust, rather than the opposite.
