    China has never recognized the so-called ‘Arunachal Pradesh’: China state-affiliated media

    Recently, five youths from Upper Subansiri of Arunachal Pradesh have been reportedly “abducted” by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army

    GUWAHATI: A day after Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs & Sports (Independent Charge) Kiren Rijiju said that the Indian Army has already sent a hotline message to the counterpart PLA establishment at the border point in Arunachal Pradesh, China state-affiliated media Global Times on Monday said that China has never recognized so-called Arunachal Pradesh.

    Global Times in a tweet said, “China has never recognized so-called ‘Arunachal Pradesh’, which is China’s south Tibet region, and we have no details to release yet about the question on Indian army sending a message to PLA about five missing Indians in the region: Chinese FM spokesperson Zhao Lijian.”

    Lijian, China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson was quoted by Global Times.

    The Global Times recently published an article criticizing India’s decision to ban Chinese apps. The article read, “Blocking Chinese apps has been one of its major moves that have drawn huge attention. Earlier reports said that India has drawn up a list of 275 Chinese apps that it will examine for any violation of national security and user privacy.”

    “Actual reasons lurking behind the highly symbolic move are New Delhi’s intention to antagonize China and cause losses to Chinese investors. It is true that related Chinese firms will bare huge losses, however, the ban is a double-edged sword for India. Although India has a relatively high potential in software development and other fields, its IT industries lack of sufficient capital support to grow independently since start-up IT firms normally need massive capital facilitation. China and the US have been two major investors in India’s IT sectors. With ample accumulation of capital, technology and experience in emerging markets, Chinese investors have built advantages over American investors in India. A cooperative approach with Chinese capital is in line with the development of India’s IT industries in the long run,” the article added.

    Recently, five youths from Nacho village in Upper Subansiri of Arunachal Pradesh have been reportedly “abducted” by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

    Tapir Gao, MP from East Arunachal constituency, tweeted: “5 Tagin youths have reportedly been abducted by China’s #PLA from Sera7 area below the McMahon Line under Indian territory in Upper Subansiri in Arunachal since 3rd Sept. Similar incident happened in March. Time to take a stand against #CCP.”  

    Tagin is the tribe the men belong to.
