On Monday China asked India to be ‘cautious’ and exercise ‘restraint’ in infrastructure of building in Arunachal Pradesh, after few days of launch of bridges that links it to the neighbouring Assam by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Arunachal Pradesh as South Tibet claimed by China. That stand is repeatedly rejected by India, asserting that the border state is an integral part of India.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry told news agency IANS, that "We hope India adopts a cautious and restrained attitude on the issue before the final settlement of the border issue with control disputes jointly to China, safeguard peace and tranquility in the border areas."
In a statement Chinese said that, "China's position on the eastern section of the Sino-Indian border areas is consistent and clear.’’
Last week the country’s largest bridge over the Brahmaputra River opened by PM Narendra Modi which connects Assam’s easternmost region with Arunachal Pradesh.
The 9.2 km Dhola-Sadiya Bridge will cut the distance and travel time between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh by 165 km and five hours.
To accommodate tanks the bridge built, will ensure swift movement of Indian troops in Arunachal Pradesh which will bolster India's defence along the China border.
China protested Last month, strongly to the Dalai Lama's visit to Arunachal Pradesh. Beijing considers the 81-year old spiritual leader a separatist. Said by India that the visit was to promote religious harmony and had no political colouring. The Dalai Lama, who fled Tibet in 1959 after a failed uprising that was crushed by Chinese troops, trekked through the Himalayas and entered India through Arunachal Pradesh.
