India to raise issue of incursions with China: Swaraj

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

External Affairs Minister will raise the issue of Chinese incursions with her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi during their meeting here on the sidelines of UN General Assembly.

Swaraj, who her counterparts from the UK, Sudan, the Maldives, Norway, Kyrgyzstan, Greece and in back-to- back meetings after landing here yesterday, is scheduled to meet the Chinese Foreign Minister today.

When asked whether she will raise the issue of Chinese incursions during her meeting with Wang, Swaraj replied, "Yes".

Chinese Army has reportedly made a fresh incursion in Chumar area in and refused to return.

Tension in the area erupted last Sunday when some Chinese workers, who were constructing a road on their side, crossed into the Indian side and also claimed that they had orders to build a road up to Tible, 5-km deep inside Indian territory.
