India Asserts Sovereignty Over Arunachal Pradesh Amidst China’s Claims

China said that Arunachal Pradesh, which is where Prime Minister Narendra Modi just opened a big infrastructure project, goes to China. India strongly disagreed with this. Both India and China have been angry at each other over the ongoing disagreement over Arunachal Pradesh, which China calls “Zangnan” or South Tibet.

China had complained about PM Modi’s visit, but the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said that such trips happen all the time and don’t change the fact that the state is an important part of India.

Randhir Jaiswal, a spokesman for India’s Ministry of External Affairs, said again that Arunachal Pradesh has always been and will always be an integral part of India.

What did the Ministry of External Affairs say?

“We don’t agree with what the Chinese said about the Prime Minister’s trip to Arunachal Pradesh.” “Indian leaders visit Arunachal Pradesh from time to time, just like they visit other Indian states,” Randhir Jaiswal, a spokesman for the ministry of foreign affairs, said.

“It doesn’t make sense to be against these kinds of visits or India’s development projects.” “It also won’t change the fact that Arunachal Pradesh was, is, and always will be an important and unbreakable part of India,” he said. Jaiswal said that the Chinese side has been “made aware of this consistent position” more than once.

Even though China keeps making claims, India has always told China what its stance is on Arunachal Pradesh. During a press conference, Wang Wenbin, a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry, reiterated China’s position. He said that China was against India’s development projects in the area and that the boundary dispute between the two countries was still open.

India is building up its infrastructure in Arunachal Pradesh. The Sela Tunnel was recently opened as part of these efforts. The goal is to improve connectivity and make it easier to quickly send troops and supplies to areas near the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The Border Roads Organization (BRO) spent 825 crore rupees to build the world’s longest twin-lane tunnel. It connects people and goods quickly and safely near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Tawang area, and it can be used in any weather.

These projects are part of India’s plan to improve the border facilities, especially in Ladakh, where there are still problems between India and China. India has made it clear that restoring normal relations between the two countries depends on achieving peace and security along the borders. This shows how important it is to use dialogue and diplomacy to settle territorial disputes.
