Beijing, September 30 (KMS): A Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson has said that China considered India’s forward policy and illegal encroachment upon the Chinese territory across the border as the root cause of tensions between the two countries.
India has long been following the forward policy and illegally encroached upon China territory across the border.

The spokesperson said that China opposed the arms race aimed at gaining more control in the disputed areas along the border.
In the meantime, we will uphold the national territorial sovereignty, security and we will uphold the peace and stability along the border, she added.
As per media reports, India has deployed more sophisticated artillery along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh. It is said that the M-777 Howitzer Guns have been deployed on the border with China.
