China urges India to stop actions complicating boundary question

BEIJING – A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Wednesday urged India to cease taking any actions that may complicate the boundary question between the two countries, and to take steps to safeguard peace and stability in border areas.

Spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on India's Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu's recent tour to the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh."

Zhao said the Chinese government has never recognized the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh" and is firmly opposed to visits paid by Indian leaders to this area.
