The Beijing government has urged peace after India deployed 100 tanks to its border with China in Ladakh. Citing the India-China border as being having always been “stable”, China said that India should continue to resolve their territorial disputes through peaceful negotiation.
On 22 July, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lu Kang, said: “The two countries should abide by relevant agreements and consensus, work in concert to maintain peace and tranquility of the border area and create a favourable environment for improving bilateral mutual trust and bolstering the proper settlement of the boundary question.”
An article in the Global Times, part of China’s Communist Party newspaper group, said: “It is puzzling that while deploying tanks near China’s border, India still strives to woo Chinese investment. The deploying of tanks near the Indo-China border may hit a nerve within the Chinese businesses community, causing investors to weigh the threat of political instability when they make investment decisions.”
Lt Gen SK Patyal, Commander of the Leh-based 14 Crops, told NDTV: “We have to defend our international borders, whatever it takes in terms of infrastructure and accretion, we are doing it in the best possible manner.” /Source: Ibtimes.co.uk/
