India on Thursday warned China against attempts to interfere in India’s internal affairs.
India’s reactions came after Beijing unsuccessfully initiated a discussion in the UN Security Council on Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs, the government said that this was not the first time that China has sought to raise a subject that is solely an internal matter of India.
“As on previous such occasions, this attempt too met with little support from the international community. We firmly reject China’s interference in our internal affairs and urge it to draw proper conclusions from such unfructuous attempts,” the government said.
The government on Wednesday received a letter of support from the US House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs which held China responsible for the aggression along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.
“The United States will remain steadfast in support of India’s efforts to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the letter addressed to Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar said.
