The Indian government warned on Thursday that it will not allow China’s illegal invasion of its territory, following the release of a report by the US saying that Beijing has built a big hamlet in a disputed part of Arunachal Pradesh.
China has been building along the border for numerous years, including in places that it has unlawfully occupied for decades. “Neither the illegal occupation of our territory nor the unreasonable Chinese claims have been recognised by India,” said the ministry of external affairs.
The administration has always expressed its strong opposition to such operations through diplomatic channels and will do so in the future,” it said. Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for India’s external affairs ministry, also stated that the country keeps a close eye on all developments affecting its security and takes all necessary steps to protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
He also noted that India has intensified infrastructure development near the Chinese border, including the construction of roads and bridges.
He said that the Government stands with the same aim to improve the lifestyles of all citizens and they take a stand to create good infrastructure with perfect border areas especially in Arunachal Pradesh
Bagchi went on to say that India had taken note of a report to Congress from the US Department of Defense that mentioned Chinese development activity along the India-China border.
According to a Pentagon assessment released earlier this month, China built a large 100-home civilian village inside the disputed territory in the eastern sector of the LAC between China’s Tibet Autonomous Region and India’s Arunachal Pradesh state.
The Indian government and media have been concerned about these and other infrastructure development projects along the India-China border,” it stated.
By knowing the source, the Chinese army constructed a big fibre optic network In all kinds of remote areas, especially in the western Himalayas. It has happened during the peak of the border between China and India and also it enhances the best communication that will increase the better protection over foreign interception
Near-real-time intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and situational data, as well as redundant and reliable communications, are considered critical by PLA field commanders for speeding decision-making processes and shortening response timeframes, according to the report.
The eastern Ladakh border standoff between Indian and Chinese forces ignited after a deadly battle in the Pangong lake areas on 5 May last year, and both sides gradually boosted their thousands of soldiers with heavy weaponry.
Following a tragic altercation in Galway Valley on June 15, last year, tensions rose.
Following a series of military and diplomatic meetings, the two parties completed the disengagement process on the north and south banks of Pangong Lake in February, and in the Gogra area in August.
The most recent round of military discussions, which took place on October 10, ended in a stalemate, with both parties blaming one other for the standoff.
