On Tuesday, India firmly rejected China’s objections to Home Minister Amit Shah visiting Arunachal Pradesh and declared that the state “was, is, and always will” be an essential and inalienable part of India.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of India has rejected the remarks made by the Chinese Official Spokesman over the recent visit of Home Minister Amit Shah to Arunachal Pradesh.

Arindam Bagchi, a spokesman for the Indian External Affairs Ministry, said that opposing such visits is unreasonable and will not change the truth.

“We completely reject the comments made by the Chinese official spokesperson. Indian leaders routinely travel to Arunachal Pradesh as they do to any other state of India,” Bagchi said.

“Arunachal Pradesh was and will always remain an integral and inalienable part of India. Objecting to such visits does not stand to reason and will not change the above reality,” he said.

The Indian home minister’s visit came days after Beijing announced Chinese names for 11 places in Arunachal Pradesh which the neighbouring it claims as the “southern part of Tibet.”

China and India share a disputed 3,440 Km long de facto called the line of The Line of Actual Control, also known as LAC; the line may change due to the presence of rivers, lakes, and snowcaps.

India and China clashed over the disputed areas, including Arunachal Pradesh. The latest bloody clash was on June 2020, in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed and several others were injured.
