India has no threat from China: Pallam Raju

Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh), Sep 27 (ANI): Minister of State for Defence M M Pallam Raju on Monday dispelled notions of insecurity along the areas bordering China, and asserted India has no threat from China.

"Every country works towards saving its own interest...from that point of view, even China will do whatever it has to, while we take our adequate safeguards in protecting our interests," said Pallam Raju, while interacting with the media persons after commissioning the new set up of Bharat Dynamics Limited, a unit functioning under the Ministry of Defence here today.

Pallam Raju also mentioned that India is acquiring and upgrading warships and weapons of the Indian Navy as a part of the defence policy.

"In terms of deterrence capabilities we are building up. We do all that we can to protect our nation's interest and in terms of strengthening the border infrastructure and strengthening the capabilities on the border. So we don't have to worry on that front," he added.

Diplomatic ties between India and China have become increasingly fraught over an unsettled border, the disputed Kashmir region and the competing global aspirations of the world's most populous nations. (ANI)
