India rejects China’s objection to Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s recent Arunachal Pradesh visit

Amid continuing tensions between India and China in Ladakh, the two neighbouring countries on Wednesday exchanged sharp statements on Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh.

Hours after China objected to Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s recent visit to Arunachal Pradesh, the Ministry of External Affairs rejected China’s opposition on Wednesday saying leaders routinely travel to the state as they do to any other state of India.

Calling Arunachal Pradesh an integral and inalienable part of India, the MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said that the objection to the visit of Indian leaders to a state of India does not stand to reason and understanding of Indian people

A day ago, China had said it was firmly opposed to Naidu’s visit to Arunachal as it had never recognized it. China’s statement came days after the latest round of military talks ended in a stalemate.

Naidu, who is on his Northeast tour, was in Arunachal over the weekend and addressed a special session of the state assembly on October 9. The visible transformation of the northeast is clear evidence of resurgence in the region’s pace of development which remained neglected for decades, Naidu had said in his speech.

However, China routinely objects to Indian leaders’ visits to Arunachal Pradesh to buttress its stand claiming Arunachal Pradesh as part of South Tibet.

The India-China boundary dispute covers 3,488 km along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

India has maintained that it was necessary to resolve the remaining issues along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh for progress in the bilateral relations.

The Chinese foreign ministry spokesman’s remarks on Wednesday came days after India and China failed to resolve the 17-month long standoff in the remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh.

After series of military and diplomatic talks between India and China, the two sides completed the disengagement process in the Gogra area last month.

In February, the two sides were withdrawn their troops and weapons from the north and south banks of the Pangong lake in line with an agreement.
