China firmly opposes US remarks on Arunachal Pradesh: Foreign ministry

China strongly deplores and firmly opposes the United States saying Arunachal Pradesh is part of India, a spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry said on Thursday.

“Delimitation of China-India boundary has never been completed,” said Lin Jian at a regular press briefing when addressing a query on the ongoing contested border issue between the two countries.

China claims Arunachal Pradesh to be a part of southern Tibet. New Delhi rejects the claim, saying Arunachal Pradesh has always been a part of India.

On Tuesday, India’s foreign ministry said that China was making “absurd claims” over Arunachal Pradesh, adding that the northeastern state which shares a border with China will always be an “integral and inalienable part of India.”
