“I am not aware of the detailed information on the (current) situation on China-India. China’s position on China-India boundary is consistent and clear cut. The Chinese government never recognizes the so-called Arunachal Pradesh,” Geng said.

“China and India are engaged in consultation and negotiation to resolve the border issues and to pursue and fair and just solution that is acceptable to both sides.
