Won’t compromise one bit on India’s borders: Amit Shah on standoff with China along LAC

However, Shah did not respond when asked if China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) has entered Indian territory.

 

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said the Narendra Modi-led central government cannot take the issue of the Indo-China border skirmish along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh and will not compromise on it, reported Network 18.

"We can't take the issue of LAC lightly," he said. "The government will not compromise one bit on this issue. We are dealing with this both militarily and diplomatically."

Several areas along the LAC in Ladakh and North Sikkim have seen major military build-up by both the Indian and Chinese armies, in a clear signal of escalating tension and hardening of positions by the two sides even two weeks after they were engaged in two separate face-offs.

Shah said talks were being held between diplomatic channels and between officials of the defence establishments to resolve the issue. "This government is duty-bound to protect its borders and there should be no doubt about the fact that absolutely no compromise will be made by India in securing its borders, whether they be on land or in water," he added.

However, Shah did not respond when asked if China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) has entered Indian territory.
