China on Tuesday justified the construction of a road in the Sikkim sector, saying the area “undoubtedly” is located on its side of the border as per the 1890 Sino-British Treaty.
“According to the treaty, ‘zhe’ is the ancient name of Sikkim,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a statement.
“As per this treaty, the area over which the Indian army has raised objection is undoubtedly located on the Chinese side of the border,” he said.
The statement came a day after the Chinese military accused the Indian army of stopping the construction of the road in what it claims to be China’s “sovereign territory” in the Sikkim section of the India-China border.
