Indian Media Adding “Fuel to Fire” in China-India Border Conflict

The news of India-China border dispute has again been unduly highlighted by the Indian media. The Chinese foreign ministry has categorically denied reports in the Indian media that alleged that Chinese border guards had crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) along the China-India border. EurAsian Times analyses a report in Chinese Media. 

According to Chinese media, the Chinese border guards have always supported and followed the bilateral agreements between India and China. “We operate on the Chinese side of the LAC, and what happened was a routine patrol on the India-China border, but on the Chinese territory,” foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told the Global Times.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached a series of crucial pacts to jointly and harmoniously manage border conflicts and maintain peace and tranquillity on the border areas. A smooth communication mechanism for border-related matters has been established between China and India, Geng stated.

“Border-related matters could be approached through the jointly agreed mechanism rather than through media,” Geng said in response to recent media coverage on China-India border affairs. “Media hype will not help in solving India-China border conflicts.” The two sides should sincerely adhere to pacts reached between Indian and Chinese leaders and assist in maintaining peace and stability in border areas, Geng stressed.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, India and China are both determined to bolster bilateral relations and have pledged to peacefully resolve border disputes after the Doklam Standoff of 2017. Recently, the Defence Minister of China, Wei Fenghe was in New Delhi to discuss inter-military cooperation between the two nations.
