China ignores 1600km border, treats J&K out of India

Just a couple of days after Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao‘s visit to India, China has created another controversy by adding a new twist to border disputes with India. A Xinhua, mouthpiece of the Chinese government, report has desribed the Sino-Indian border as 2,000 km long, ignoring nearly 1,600 km from its definition of China’s border with India. The border as per Indian account is 3,500 km.

China apparently no longer treats the line of nearly 1,600 km separating Jammu and Kashmir on one hand and Xinjiang and Tibet on the other as a border with India.
