Border with China is peaceful and tranquil

New Delhi: India today said Chinese patrols do stray across to the Indian side but down played such incidents holding that its boundary with China is one of the most peaceful and tranquil.

The Line of Actual Control with China has not yet been delineated and there are differences in perception which is very natural.

"So from time to time, the patrols do stray across. This is not new. But when it happens, they revert to their areas," an official spokesperson in External Affairs Ministry said.

"I would like to highlight that India-China boundary is one of the most peaceful, one of the most tranquil boundaries that we have," he said.

“India and China have a very good mechanism and if there is any issue pertaining to such incursions, they are immediately taken up and amicably resolved”, he added.
