In India, Chief of Air Staff PV Naik said reports about China encroaching into India were not true and there was no change on the Sino-Indian border.
He said, "Nothing has changed on the border. Our survey has not confirmed…China taking away our land."
Denying any build-up on the border with China, the Indian Air Force (IAF) chief said such issues were the concern of the government and not of the air force.
Asked about China building airports in the border areas, Naik said China had the right to do anything within its territory.
Hindustan Times reported he said, "A country which is its own master can do whatever within its borders…We are aware of such developments. If you ask me whether it had shifted the balance of power, my answer is not at all," Naik asserted.
