Oppose 'third-party' involvement in Sino-India border disputes: China

Japan to play a bigger role in development of NE

Amid Japan's push for stepping up investments in India's northeast, China said today that it was opposed to any third-party involvement in the resolution of the Sino-India boundary disputes or any foreign investments in areas over which it has claims in the region.

Japan's plan to step-up its investment in North-East was announced during Japanese premier Shinzo Abe's visit to Ahmedabad for the 12th India-Japan Annual Summit.

It is clear that the Modi government has set India-Japan ties on an accelerated geopolitical course that will be a major factor in its dealings with the rest of the world, especially China, at a time when the U.S.is perceived to be retreating from the region. "We are now trying to seek a solution through negotiation that is acceptable to both sides", Hua said.

"You also mentioned Act East policy". Under such circumstances, the official has said, various parties should respect such aspects and any third party should not be involved in our efforts to resolve the disputes.

With just:02 showing on the clock in the first frame, Luke Strebel booted a 37-yard field goal to knot the score at 3-all. Air Force found itself down 16-6 after Peoples-Jones ran back the punt with 13:51 to go in the third quarter.

The visiting leader also referred to the recent Malabar Japan-India-US naval exercise and said cooperation would be further strengthened.

About the India-Japan joint statement, Hua said, "The statement mentioned resolving disputes through negotiation and dialogue".

Reports say that the UNCLOS was mentioned atleast four time in the 2016 joint statement between the two countries. We know that resolving disputes by directly concerned parties to uphold freedom of navigation and over flight is China's position. "We hope that the development of normal relations between Japan and India can play a constructive role for the mutual trust and cooperation between regional countries and the peace, stability and development of the region", she said. India's decision to partner with Japan for the 508-km, Rs. 1.1 lakh-crore project is as much about politics as it is about infrastructure: Japan has been keen to export its high-speed train technology along with rolling stock, and India's move to confirm the Japanese contracts while China wins projects along its Belt and Road railway line is significant. "I have not seen that". "India and Japan are important countries in Asia".
