BJP condemns Chinese envoy’s remarks on Arunachal

via IANS published on November 14, 2006

New Delhi:The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday condemned Chinese Ambassador Sun Yuxi’s remarks claiming that Arunachal Pradesh was a part of China.

“The BJP condemns and deplores these remarks. Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and will remain so,” BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said here Tuesday.

“I am amazed at why the Left parties are silent on this important issue and why the Congress is not taking a clear stand over this peculiar claim of China.”

According to the BJP leader, the fact that these statement were being made ahead of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit here next week indicated that the external affairs ministry had yet to get its act together.

“In our position the whole of the state of Arunachal Pradesh is Chinese territory. And Tawang is only one of the places in it. We are claiming all of that. That is our position,” the Chinese envoy had told CNN-IBN in an interview.
