China objects to Narendra Modi’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, India dismisses remark

Narendra Modi arrives to attend the Beating the Retreat ceremony in New Delhi

Beijing's position on the issue has been "consistent and clear", foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement on Saturday.

Hours within Prime Minister, Narendra Modi's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, China has said that it opposes activities of Indian leaders in the region.

Therefore, Beijing claimed that the action of visiting the disputed state by the Indian PM would impede the progress made by both countries, and escalate the border tensions reported IANS.

On Saturday, the Ministry of External Affairs' official spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "The state of Arunachal Pradesh is an integral and inalienable part of India".

Modi's visit was part of a series of public meetings in the region aimed at garnering support for his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party ahead of Indian elections due by May.

PM Modi laid the foundation stone for construction of greenfield Airport at Hollongi and inaugurated a retrofitted airport at Tezu in Lohit district through a remote. In addition to providing better connectivity to the region, the airport will also unravel the tourism potential of the state.

However, in April 2018, there seemed to be an effort to improve bilateral ties when Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met.

Addressing a massive gathering of supporters on the occasion, the PM said that an additional Rs 13,000 crore worth of projects for the northeastern state are in the pipeline.

He further added that, "Arunachal Pradesh is India's pride... it is India's gateway". Chinese forces had attempted to build a road on the Doklam plateau in Bhutan in 2017, which was stopped by the Indian Army leading to a two-month long stand-off between the two sides.

The two leaders had met in the Chinese city of Wuhan for an informal summit in April previous year, where they had agreed to provide "strategic guidance" to their respective militaries to avoid the recurring of Doklam-like incidents. New Delhi also said Indian leaders visit Arunachal Pradesh just as they visit other parts of India.

Modi and Xi met met at least four times past year, including at Wuhan, in a bid to bring ties back on a stable footing after the standoff in Doklam in 2017.
