Notwithstanding the incidents of Chinese aggression, Ministry of External Affairs on Monday described the boundary with China as "most peaceful" and said these "incursions" will be certainly sorted out.

"Let me go on record to say that this (border with China) has been one of the most peaceful boundaries that we have had as compared to other boundary lines with other countries," Minister for External Affairs S M Krishna told reporters.

He was asked about the incidents of China violating India's airspace and International Border.

Noting that the country has a very long border of over 3000 km with China, Krishna said, "there is a built-in
mechanism which is in place and which takes care of such incursions."

"With China, I think the boundary has been one of the most peaceful. So, there is no issue on that. There is no
problem on that. These incursions will be certainly sorted out," he said.

After helicopter incursions into Indian airspace, official sources said Chinese Army has violated the International Border in Ladakh region and painted boulders and rocks in the area red.
