New Delhi, Jan 14 (ANI): Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor on Thursday rubbished recent reports of India losing any part of land to China.

Addressing the media in the national capital General Kapoor said: "There is no other area as I told earlier that Indian territories have shrunk that's a wrong thing."

Earlier this week, a section of the media reported that India has lost vast tracts of land to China along the line of actual control (LAC) in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minster Omar Abdullah had also expressed concern over the media reports of India losing land to China.

General Kapoor said that the Army to Army relations between India and China were in the right direction.

"As far as the number of troops are concerned, the attitude of the Chinese and our (India's) attitude is alright and there are regular border personnel meetings," General Kapoor said.

"Whenever there are any differences we have a mechanism and between India and China there is border peace and tranquillity agreement signed in 1993," General Kapoor added.

He said if any problems arise, both the countries have the ability to solve it peacefully.

"Whenever there is problem that we can discuss it between each other on the hotline or after calling a border personnel meet, a clarification be sought," General Kapoor said. (ANI)
