China says it did not violate Indian airspace
Beijing: China on Tuesday denied that its
military helicopter had violated Indian airspace in Jammu and
Kashmir, saying its border patrols abide by rules and
"China does not encroach on other countries`
airspace," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told
"Chinese border patrols abide by relevant rules and
regulations, and do not cross borders or enter the airspace or
territory of other countries," Jiang was quoted as saying by
the official Xinhua news agency.
The statement comes a day after Indian Army Chief
General Deepak Kapoor said a Chinese helicopter had violated
Indian airspace two months back and that New Delhi has taken
up the matter with Beijing.
The spokeswoman also termed as "groundless" Indian
media reports that there had been military friction between
China and India along their mutual borderline.
"China and India have reached a consensus, agreeing
that the two sides would work together to maintain peace and
stability in border areas before border issues are
negotiated," Jiang said.
