Modi-Xi summit: China says India military didn’t hold drill in Arunachal Pradesh


China is not worried about India holding a large-scale military exercise in the “disputed eastern sector” as it hasn’t taken place, a top Chinese diplomat said in Beijing on Wednesday after formally announcing President Xi Jinping’s visit to India, beginning October 11.

When asked by Chinese media whether China was concerned that the military exercises in the “disputed eastern sector” could impact the atmosphere of the summit, vice-foreign minister Luo Zhaohui said, “We have no worry at all because that is not true.”

Luo was speaking at a special briefing held to announce Xi’s visit to India for the second informal summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi beginning Friday.
