CHINA DENIES REPORTS OF TROOPS LAYING CABLES AT INDIA BORDER
China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday denied reports that Chinese troops are laying fibre optic cables at a flashpoint at the border with India.
China and India will remain in communication through diplomatic and military channels, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a news briefing.
“As far as I know, the relevant report is not true,” the spokesman, Wang Wenbin, said when asked on Tuesday.
India had earlier claimed that Chinese troops were laying a network of fiber optic cables at a western Himalayan flashpoint with India, suggesting they were digging in for the long haul despite high-level talks aimed at resolving a standoff there.
