China has said that it does not recognise Ladakh as a Union Territory of India and has said that it will oppose infrastructure development in this region of India.
According to Global Times, “China does not recognise the so-called Union Territory of Ladakh illegally established by India, and opposes infrastructure construction in disputed border areas for military control purposes, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Tuesday in response to India building roads along the border”.
China has been opposing the developments post August 5, 2019, and has now said that it is a disputed border area between China and India. According to the Global Times, “recent consensus reached between China and #India, neither side should take any actions in border areas that would complicate the situation, so as not to affect the efforts of both sides to ease the situation, Wang said”.
