BEIJING, Oct 30 � China�s military today expressed concern over India�s plan to construct 54 new border posts in Arunachal Pradesh, saying India should not complicate the situation and do more to maintain peace as it is a �disputed area�, reports PTI.

�We have noticed relevant report. Dispute still exists in the eastern part of China-India border,� Defence Ministry Spokesman Yang Yujin told a media briefing here when asked a question on the plans announced by the Home Ministry to build 54 new border posts along the Arunachal Pradesh border.

�We urge the Indian side to do more to maintain peace and stability in the area and not do things that may complicate the situation,� he said.

Asked why China is wary of India�s development of infrastructure along the border when it has carried out extensive development on its side, Yang said, �I think that the roads you are talking about are in the eastern part of the China-India border which is still a disputed area.�

�China�s position on the dispute in this area is clear and consistent,� he said.

China claims Arunachal Pradesh as southern Tibet.

�It is an important consensus reached by the two sides to maintain peace and stability along the Line of Actual Control and both sides should do more towards converging direction rather than contrary,� he said.

The Indian government last week announced setting up of 54 new border outposts and a Rs 175 crore package for beefing up the infrastructure along the border in Arunachal Pradesh.
