Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in India has issued a statement in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech during his visit to Ladakh on Friday.

In a tweet, Chinese embassy spokesperson Ju Rong said, “#China has demarcated boundary with 12 of its 14 neighboring countries through peaceful negotiations, turning land borders into bonds of friendly cooperation. It’s groundless to view China as “expansionist”, exaggerate & fabricate its disputes with neighbours.”

Amid a military standoff between India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), Prime Minister Narendra Modi inspected forward positions at Leh’s Nemu sector in Ladakh. He was accompanied by Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat and Chief of Army Staff General MM Navarane.

During his visit, PM Modi while addressing jawans said, “The age of expansionism is over. The world has moved on the path of development. The expansionist forces have ruined the world in the last century. But they have either been defeated or forgotten in history.”

The Prime Minister also lauded the bravery of the Indian Army as he said, “Our enemies have seen your fire and fury. This land in Ladakh is India’s crown. It has given several brave hearts to the nation.”

Earlier, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was scheduled to visit Ladakh on Friday. However, the trip was rescheduled and CDS General Bipin Rawat was expected to visit on behalf of the Defence Minister. It was only on Friday morning that reports confirmed the presence of PM Narendra Modi in Nemu sector.

After he addressed jawans in Nemu, PM Modi also visited recovering soldiers injured during the Galwan Valley face-off with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on June 15. “Your bravery and courage will inspire the next generation,” the Prime Minister told recovering jawans.
