China on Friday again tried to blame India for the ongoing border tensions in Ladakh. Chinese defence minister Wei Fenghe has reportedly told his Indian counterpart Rajnath Singh that India bears full responsibility for current India-China border tensions, according to Chinese mouthpiece Global Times.
According to a Twitter post by Global Times news website, Wei Fenghe also told Rajnath Singh, during a meeting in Moscow, that the Chinese military has determination, capability and confidence to safeguard China’s territorial integrity.
There was no readout yet of the talks from the Indian side.
The conversation between Rajnath Singh and Wei Fenghe took place on the sidelines of the China and Russia dominated Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) regional grouping in Moscow at a time when the two are locked in a bitter border row in eastern Ladakh for around four months.
