China parries questions on India’s mountain strike corps proposal

China Friday parried questions on India’s proposal for the establishment of mountain strike corps along the Sino-Indian border, while the official media here ignored the development.
‘The Chinese and Indian governments have signed several agreements on safeguarding peace and tranquillity in the border areas and on taking trust-building measures in the field of military’, Chinese Foreign Ministry, said in written response to a query from PTI on China’s reaction to the Indian move.

‘The overall situation in the border areas between the two countries is peaceful and stable. The Chinese side is ready to work with the Indian side to maintain peace and tranquillity on the border areas’, the brief response said, without making any direct reference to the Indian government’s clearance to form the division.
