China firmly opposes the Indian leader's relevant actions in the relevant region, Lu Kang, ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson said at a regular briefing.

To a question, Lu said that the Chinese government never acknowledged the so-called Arunachal Pradesh. Recently China had slammed India ahead of a visit by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. China has claimed Arunachal as a part of South Tibet.

Kovind said on Sunday if the northeast was the crown of the country, Arunachal Pradesh was the "jewel in the crown". The President was on a four-day tour of the northeast.
