Indian Defense Minister Manmohan Singh revealed at the end of last month that the Indian government has doubled the infrastructure budget on the Sino Indian border, according to Reuters. In response to Indias priority of building a high-altitude, all-weather Expressway in the Ladakh area along the Sino Indian border as a matter of priority, Wang Wenbin, the foreign ministry, responded at a press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 29th, saying that China does not recognize the so-called Ladakh central directly administered region illegally established by India, but opposes carrying out infrastructure construction for the purpose of military dispute control in the border disputed areas. According to the recent consensus reached between China and India, neither side should take any action in the border area that will complicate the situation, so as to avoid affecting the efforts of both sides to ease the situation.
