China denies Army trespassed into India
Beijing: China`s Ministry of National Defence on Thursday denied that Chinese border troops and aircraft had trespassed across the Line of Actual Control between China and India.
The media reports on Chinese border troops, military planes and helicopters crossing the line of actual control are "not true", said Yang Yujun, the ministry`s spokesman, at a press conference here.
Chinese and Indian border troops are maintaining communications through existing channels, Xinhua quoted him as saying.
China`s border troops have strictly observed relevant agreements between China and India and have been working to safeguard border peace, according to the spokesman.
According to reports in the Indian media, Chinese troops set up a post inside Indian territory, about 10 km from the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto border between India and China.
The Chinese post, set up on April 15, is being manned by almost 50 men round-the-clock.
The Indian Army has positioned itself 50 metres from the Chinese post. Despite flag meetings between the local commanders, the situation has not defused.
