China lashes out at US ambassador to visiting Arunachal Pradesh
BEIJING: China admonished the United States on Monday for sending its ambassador in India to a contested stretch of land on the India-China border, warning that a third party’s meddling would only complicate the dispute between Beijing and New Delhi.
China claims more than 90,000 sq km (35,000 sq miles) of Arunachal Pradesh, which China calls South Tibet.
US Ambassador to India Richard Verma posted photos on his Twitter account on Oct. 21 of his recent trip to Arunachal Pradesh, thanking Indian officials for their “warm hospitality” and calling the region a “magical place”.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China was “firmly opposed” to the US diplomat’s actions, which he said would “damage the hard-earned peace and tranquillity of the China-India border region”.
“Any responsible third party should respect efforts by China and India to seek peaceful and stable reconciliation, and not the opposite,” Lu told a regular press briefing.
“We urge the United States to stop getting involved in the China-India territorial dispute and do more to benefit this region’s peace and tranquillity,” he said, adding that China and India were handling the matter appropriately through talks.
A spokesman for India’s Ministry of External Affairs was not immediately available for comment.
China conveniently forgets that CPEC passes through PoK – Indian territory.
China Irked because US Ambasador visited indian side of AP what about China who is trying to enter in POK
WHy shd China object? That” India”s land, and if it”s disputed, then y r they in Disputed POK ? CPEC is on disputed land,
China should not forget that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India & the US Ambassador is free to visit!
High time India opens a navy base in South China Sea, contracted from Japan. Only then, will the dragon behave responsibly.
India plz boycott made in China, it will teach them lesson
Tibet belongs to india
If given a chance, China will claim the entire Asia as it’s territory
Arunachal is free zone of India ever since it’s existence and any person or dignitary may visit
This is the true face of China. It covets other”s territory. Even Tibet does not belong to them. They have forcibly occupied it.
China must know that it is not 1962. We are ready to retaliate with all our might to repulse any aggression by China. Arunachal is our land. China need not bother whom India allows to visit the place.
Never trust china, we have to have aggressive policy with it. we need to learn lot from 1962 war and never trust china.
Why the heck are the Chinks in PoK which is a disputed territory?
what is china doing in poc.
