New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: TThe Ministry of Home Affairs on Wednesday told the Parliament that no infiltration has been reported along the India-China border during the last six months. The statement came amid the ongoing standoff between the two countries in Ladakh and multiple attempts by China’s PLA to alter the status quo at the LAC.
Yesterday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh addressed the Parliament on the India-China border issue. Addressing the Lok Sabha, Rajnath Singh said that both India and China agree that it is essential to improve the bilateral relations between the two neighbours and to maintain peace and tranquillity along with the India-China border areas. However, the defence minister said that the issue between the two neighbours remains unresolved. He also said that China doesn't recognise the traditional and customary alignment of the boundary, while India considers that alignment is based on well established geographical principles.
