China cornered itself from attending the G20 meeting on Sunday, that was held in Arunachal Pardesh, an Indian northeastern state which the China calls a part of Tibet. However, refuting the claims India stays at that it is an integral part of India.
India currently hold the presidency of G20. The meeting on Sunday was among the dozens of events to be conducted across 50 different cities ahead the G20 summit in Delhi, which will be held in September.
It is however still nog clear, whether China has launched protest with India over the meeting on Sunday. So far, none among the foreign ministry and Chinese officials have said anything over the issue.
The Arunachal meeting was a confidential one and hence media coverage was not allowed.
The meeting was organized by the department of Science and Technology with a theme of ‘Research innovation, initiative, gathering’.
Over 50 delegates attended the meeting and later they even visited the Buddhist monastery in Itanagar and Arunachal Pradesh Legislative assembly.
Last December, the Indian and Chinese troops had clashed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) at the state’s Tawang region resulting into a months long standoff in eastern Ladakh.
