Oppose 'third-party' involvement in Sino-India border disputes: China

BJP chief Amit Shah today responded to China's objection to the planned Japanese investment for the development of India's north-eastern states.

Expressing displeasure over the proposed Japanese investments in India's North-East states, China has said it is against the involvement of "third parties" the region where it has border disputes with India, media reports said.

Hua said the boundary between India and China was yet to be delimited: "There are disputes over the eastern section of the China-India boundary". With the opulent pageantry and 8-km roadshow in Gujarat over, it is time to get down to brass tacks and address some of the issues in order to facilitate closer ties between India and Japan, even as the two leaders and militaries forge closer bonds.

Most of those deaths were the result of either medical issues as they prepared for the storm or carbon monoxide poisoning. The utility serves 1.8 million customers in the state, from the Florida panhandle south to the central part of the state.

Reacting to it, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying had said, "You also mentioned Act East policy". Both the title of the joint statement, "Toward a free, open and prosperous Indo-Pacific", and substantive paragraphs on cooperation in the region, indicate a much closer alignment between India and Japan in countering China's influence in the South China Sea, its forays into the Indian Ocean, and investments in South Asia and Africa.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe held wide-ranging talks on key bilateral, regional and worldwide issues and discussed ways to deepen ties in trade, security and civil nuclear energy.

Hua said the boundary between India and China was yet to be settled: "There are disputes over the eastern section of the China-India boundary".

Kharge said: "We have seen 19 major (railway) accidents in the past one year and Rs 1.1 lakh crore is required for rail safety". Party sources acknowledged that the launch of the bullet train project could consolidate urban votes in the BJP's favour.

Among host of issues and collaborations mentioned in the India-Japan joint statement during Shinzo Abe's visit, the issue of South China sea was conspicuously missing.

Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said: "We agreed on a Japan-India Act East Forum which will essentially the explore the possibilities of involving Japan in the development of North East infrastructure". Under such circumstances, the official has said, various parties should respect such aspects and any third party should not be involved in our efforts to resolve the disputes. India has also extended to Japan an offer denied to any other country, which is to assist in infrastructure development in the Northeast. "As far as I am concerned, it is better to ask Japan and India and see whether they can make some clarifications on this".
