Beijing: China today warned the United States (US) after its envoy visiting Arunachal Pradesh, warning it not to meddle in the border dispute between New Delhi and Beijing.
After the US ambassador to India Richard Verma went to Tawang in Arunachal which touches Chinese border, Beijing said such acts will make the dispute more “complicated” between the two countries and “sabotage” peace in the region.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a regular media briefing, “You have also noted that the place visited by the senior diplomatic official is disputed region between China and India. We are firmly opposed to the visit to the disputed area between India and China.”
“We urge the US to stop interference in boundary issue between China and India and make more commitment to regional peace and stability.”
Lu said the boundary issue between India and China was complex and sensitive and interference by a third party would heighten tension.
“Two countries are now trying to resolve territorial disputes through negotiations and consultation. Any third party should have sense of responsibility and should respect efforts made by China and India for peace reconciliation and tranquillity rather than opposite.
