China Is In Illegal Occupation Of 38,000 Square Km Of Indian Land: Rajnath Singh
China is in illegal occupation of 38,000 square km of Indian land and it considers another 90,000 square km as its own, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said in Parliament on Tuesday, 15 September, adding that the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is not clearly delineated.
The Defence Minister said that China has tried to disrupt the ground situation in May and June and it led to India's response. "We have told China that such incidents won't be acceptable to us," Rajnath Singh said.
China continues to be in illegal occupation of approximately 38,000 sq km in the Union Territory of Ladakh.
In addition, under the so-called Sino-Pakistan 'Boundary Agreement' of 1963, Pakistan illegally ceded 5,180 sq km of Indian territory in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to China.
China also claims approximately 90,000 sq kms of Indian territory in the eastern sector of the India-China boundary in Arunachal Pradesh, said the defence minister.
