Beijing: China on Wednesday said that it has always "strictly honoured" its commitments to work to safeguard peace and tranquility on the border with India.

Reacting to reports that India has lost "substantial" amount of land to China in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu said she has not read them.

"I have not read such reports," Jiang said when asked to comment on reports that China is now nibbling into India`s border territory.

"China and India have reached a consensus that pending the final resolution, the two sides should work together to safeguard peace and tranquility along the border so as not to affect the overall cooperation between the two countries.

“China has always strictly honoured its commitments," she said.
