China accuses India of ‘illegal’ move to change Ladakh’s status as border stand-off continues

China on Tuesday described India’s designation of the region along their disputed border as a union territory an illegal move, and voiced new objections to infrastructure construction that seems to strengthen India’s position in the area.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin also said reports of new Chinese military bases and other facilities being built on its side were “totally untrue and have ulterior motives”.

Senior commanders agreed earlier this month not to add more troops along their fast-militarising disputed border in the mountainous Ladakh region, but appear to have made no progress in disengaging their forces from the ongoing stand-off despite previous commitments to do so.
