A long term territorial dispute between Beijing and New Delhi has been brewing along the Tibetan border. China lays claim to roughly 35,000 square miles ruled by India, while India says that China is currently occupying 14,600 square miles of its territory.
To assert its own claims, New Delhi plans to deploy advanced BrahMos cruise missiles to the region. Introduced in 2007, the projectile is one of India’s most versatile weapons, capable of being launched from ships, submarines, aircraft, or land.
"We hope the Indian side can do more for peace and stability in the border region," Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Wu Qian told reporters, according to the Hindu.
"This news has gained widespread attention. India’s move to deploy missiles on the national boundary has already exceeded its defense needs and poses a serious threat to Tibet and Yunnan," it said.
Military buildups along the Sino-Indian border have increased in recent weeks. Last month, India deployed nearly 100 tanks to the Ladakh region. In response, Beijing warned of possible economic consequences.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday the United States needs to fulfill its commitment to separate moderate Syrian rebel forces from terrorist groups before condemning the Bashar al-Assad regime over a new United Nations report finding Syria has continued chemical weapons attacks against civilians.
