China tells India keep a tight head over controversies

The bilateral relations between India and China have run into a rough weather, with Beijing today making a statement that New Delhi should not bring differences to the fore till the boundary dispute is settled.

New Delhi, May 29 : The bilateral relations between India and China have run into a rough weather, with Beijing today making a statement that New Delhi should not bring differences to the fore till the boundary dispute is settled.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu today said in Beijing that bringing bilateral differences into the front before the boundary issue is resolved might affect exchanges between the two nations.

"We hold that the boundary issue between China and India should be settled fairly and reasonably at an early date through friendly consultations," she said when asked to comment on China's refusal to grant visa to an Indian IAS official from Arunachal Pradesh.

Following the reported denial of visa to Gonesh Koyu, India cancelled the visit of 107 IAS officers for mid-career training in China. Reacting to this, Jiang said China welcomes the "friendly exchanges" between the two nations.

"We welcome the Indian personnel to come and visit China and participate in the training programme," she added.

So far, no reason has been given by Beijing as to why visa was denied to Koyu.

The visa was apparently denied on grounds that since he hails from Arunachal Pradesh he is a Chinese citizen. Other members of the 107-member delegation, which was set to leave for China on May 26, were granted visa.

The neighbours share a 2,200-mile border, largely along the icy Himalayan mountains. Both the sides claim the other is occupying parts of its territory.

In 2006, when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited India, the two countries agreed on an 11-point roadmap to settle the border row politically.
