China denies conducting patrols inside Afghanistan

Dec 01, 2016 - 09:39

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): China has vehemently denied its troops crossed the border into northeastern Afghanistaninfo-icon for patrolling the Little Pamir region of the war-torn country.

At a regular news briefing in Beijing on Wednesday, a defence ministry spokesman told reporters that Chinese military vehicles never patrolled inside Afghanistan.

Earlier, India’s WION TV channel released images on its website of what it called military vehicles of Chinese security forces patrolling the territory of Afghanistan.

But Yang Yujun, the defence ministry spokesperson, said: “Reports in foreign media of Chinese military vehicles patrolling inside Afghanistan are inconsistent with facts.”

In recent years, the two sides have been discussing joint efforts to prevent terrorist acts and organised cross-border crime based on an agreement on strengthening bilateral cooperation.
