Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on February 15, 2018

Q: According to reports, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh" on February 15. What is your comment?

A: China's position on the China-India boundary question is consistent and clear-cut. The Chinese government has never recognized the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh" and is firmly opposed to the Indian leader's visit to the disputed area. We will lodge stern representations with the Indian side. China and India have reached important consensus on properly managing disputes. The two sides are working to resolve the territorial disputes through negotiation and consultation. The Chinese side urges the Indian side to honor its commitment and abide by the relevant consensus, refrain from taking any action that may complicate the boundary question, cherish the hard-won momentum of improvement in bilateral relations and create enabling conditions for the boundary talks and the development of bilateral relations.
