China on Friday refuted allegations of denial of visa to the manager of the Indian badminton team on the ground that he is a resident of Arunachal Pradesh, which Beijing claims as Southern Tibet, saying he himself cancelled his visa application.

Bamang Tago had applied for a Chinese visa at its embassy in New Delhi to travel to Fuzhou for the ongoing China Super Series Premier badminton tournament. “What you said does not comply with the facts,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters here while commenting on the Tago’s visa issue.

“According to what we learnt that the person you have mentioned had previously gone to the Chinese embassy in India for visa application but later he himself cancelled the visa application,” Geng claimed.
