India on Wednesday angrily rejected China’s objection to a visit to Arunachal Pradesh by vice president M Venkaiah Naidu. Naidu made a two-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh over the weekend as part of a tour of the northeast, and addressed a special session of the state assembly in Itanagar on Saturday. China opposed the Vice President’s visit and said Beijing doesn’t recognise Arunachal Pradesh and is firmly opposed to visits to the region by Indian leaders. Hours later, external affairs ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi rejected China’s objection to the visit. “Indian leaders routinely travel to the state of Arunachal Pradesh as they do to any other state of India. Objecting to the visit of Indian leaders to a state of India does not stand to reason and understanding of Indian people,” he said. Watch the full video for more details.
