China Must be asked to vacate Occupied Tibet forthwith
The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson has accused India of being the “root cause” of tensions along the border, accusing Delhi of enhancing infrastructure construction and troop deployment in the disputed areas
Responding to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurating 44 key bridges built in areas of strategic importance, China on Tuesday said it was strongly opposed to the move and that it did not recognise the Union Territory of Ladakh “illegally” set up by India.
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian must refrain from making such illegal and outrageous statements that would further complicate the LAC situation. The Chinese comments coming a day after the seventh round of military talks between the two nations is sign of sheer frustration.
The Chinese first invaded Tibet and over a period managed to occupy it fully. Since most of the World ignored this invasion at time, it emboldened them completely. The Indian Prime Minister of the time too acted naively. So next the Chinese entered Ladkak, nibbling first followed by 1962 conflict. Since then the Chinese are in illegal possession of a chunk of India territory now named Chinese Occupied Ladhak.
India and China have been engaged in a bitter stand-off since earlier this year after 20 Indian soldiers died in clashes with the PLA at the Galwan Valley in Ladakh in June and Chinese lost over 40 dead and nearly 90 wounded.
“China does not recognise the so-called Union Territory of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh illegally set up by India,” Zhao said, reported the Global Times. “We are opposed to infrastructure construction for the purpose of military surveillance in disputed border areas.”
So reports INDIANPOLITICS.CO.IN “ that people of India do not recognize the illegal occupation of the Chinese over Tibet, Xinjiang and of course our on Chinese Occupied Ladhak “.
Zhao said according to the recent consensus reached between the two sides, neither China nor India should take any action in the border areas that would “complicate the dispute” and to “not undermine the efforts made by both nations to de-escalate the situation”.
Zhao should know that firstly we do not share any border with China but only with Tibet. Next whatever we do in our area is none if their business.
Zhao also accused India of being the “root cause” of tensions along the border. This, he said, was because “India has continued to enhance infrastructure construction and troop deployment in the disputed areas over a period of time”. He urged India to take “practical actions” for peace and tranquillity in the border areas.
Actually root cause of everything is the PLA. In case it withdraws back to Tibet China border then all problems will simply vanish.
The bridges inaugurated by India have been built in strategically key areas of Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.
A majority of these bridges are expected to significantly improve movement of troops in areas along the border with China in Ladakh, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh sectors, officials said.
“Our armed forces personnel are deployed in large numbers in areas where transport is not available throughout the year,” he said, noting improvement in border infrastructure will significantly help armed forces. “These roads are not only for strategic needs, but they also reflect equal participation of all stakeholders in the development of the nation,” Rajnath Singh had said after the inauguration.
Amid the border standoff, India is expediting work on several key projects including on a strategic road linking Darcha in Himachal Pradesh with Ladakh that will criss-cross a number of high-altitude snow-bound passes.
The nearly 290-km-long road will be crucial for the movement of troops and heavy weaponry into the frontier bases of the Ladakh region and will provide a crucial link to the Kargil region.
