The army on Wednesday said there was no intrusion by China along the border with India in Ladakh region, but admitted that there were incidents of "transgression", which it termed as a 'matter of perception of boundary'.
"There is no intrusion or incursion whatsoever. There has been transgression. It continues," General Officer Commanding-In-Chief (GOC-In-C), Nothern Command, Lt Gen B S Jaswal told reporters at Nagrota-base corps headquarter area.
Replying to questions over alleged intrusions by Chinese Army in Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir, he said "there are differences among intrusion, incursion (invasion) and transgression. There is no incursion or intrusion at all. It is a matter of perception of the borderline."
"There is no weak intelligence. There is no weak foreign policy. There is boundary question and is being looked into by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)," the officer said.
He further said, "within the framework of transgression, we come to perceived borderline and they come to their perceived borderline".
About infiltration along Indo-Pak border, Gen Jaswal said, "Infiltration is less this year. However, attempts are getting more".
"The increase in the infiltration is getting publicised because we have neutralised more militants after infiltration," he said.
