New Delhi: The Indo-Tibetan Border Police
on Saturday said the Sino-India border was "extremely peaceful" and
there were no new threats to its security, rejecting latest
reports of incursion attempts being made by the dragon nation.

"What I personally commit myself to is that there is some
dispute in certain sectors because of the Line of Actual
Control at the Indo-China border. But it is extremely
peaceful. There is nothing which requires any measures from
Indian side to further guard the border," Director General of
ITBP Ranjit Sinha told reporters here.

Noting that border dispute between the two countries
dates back to the 1962 war, he said, "Both the parties (India
and China leaders) have talked it. There are many committees
which meet on regular intervals. The border there is very
peaceful and government is taking action on the controversial
matters."

Asked about recent reports of air and land space
violation by the Chinese side, the DG said, "First you should
know the boundary. If you are not knowing your home`s boundary
then how would you say there has been incursion. It is a
matter on which talks are still underway.

"There are no new challenges as such. We are guarding
that border. In fact we are the only police given the task of
guarding it. There is nothing which we can talk about or which
requires the attention of the media," he insisted.

ITBP guards the 3488 km Indo-China frontier from
Karakoram pass to Jechap La.
