Beijing : China on Monday urged India to uphold peace at the border regions after clashes between soldiers of the two countries took place at the Sikkim border area.
“We hope India will work with China to uphold peace and tranquility in the border regions with its concrete actions,” Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Zhao Lijian was quoted as saying by media.
A clash took place at the China-India border last week. Several soldiers, from both sides, were injured after throwing stones and fighting each other.
The spokesperson said, “As to the China-India border issue, our position is clear and consistent. Our troops there remained committed to upholding peace and stability in the region.
“Under such circumstances, the two sides should work together, handle the differences earnestly and uphold peace and stability in the border regions to create enabling conditions for bilateral relations as well as to fight against COVID-19 jointly,” he added.
