BEIJING, July 3 - As Prime Minister Narendra Modi undertook a surprise visit on Friday to eastern Ladakh to meet troops amid a bitter Sino-India military standoff, China said neither side should make any move that may complicate the border situation.
Modi visited Leh where he interacted with personnel of the Army, Air Force and ITBP.
Reacting to Modi�s visit, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that, �China and India are in communication with each other through military and diplomatic channels. Neither side should make any move that may complicate the border situation.�
Spokesperson of the Chinese embassy in Delhi Ji Rong in a tweet said it is �groundless� to view China as �expansionist�, and claimed that China has demarcated boundary with 12 of its 14 neighbouring countries peacefully.
India on Thursday said it expected China to ensure expeditious restoration of peace and tranquillity in the border areas in sync with provisions of relevant bilateral pacts. � PTI
