ITANAGAR, Jan 21 � A prominent NGO in Arunachal Pradesh today said that the stapled visa issued by China to two Arunachalee sportsmen which barred them from embarking on an invitational trip to that country, could not be a responsible step by any Government.
�While both the countries should resolve the issue diplomatically, our people have the right to travel anywhere as China has no right to stop our people from entering their territory,� the NGO Arunachal Citizen�s Rights (ACR) said in a statement here.
�Weightlifter Yukar Sibi and the official Techi Abraham were made to suffer by our own people and the Government when stapled visas issued by the Chinese Embassy were not recognised as a valid travel document and they were not allowed to proceed to China,� the NGO chairman Bamang Tago said in the statement.
�Non-recognition of stapled visas as a valid travel document cannot be accepted as a responsible step by the Government,� Tago said. �PTI
