We want peace, but not at the cost of honour: India tells China


Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that India wants peace from China, but not at the cost of honour. "Humlog shanti chahte hai samman ke saath. Asamman ke saath shanti nahi ho sakti (We want peace with honour. Peace cannot come at the cost of honour)," he said, referring to the recent border thaw with China.

"Pride is the ultimate accomplishment of a human being, of mine and yours," he said, addressing the 53rd raising day function of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, which guards the China-India border.

"PM Modi has also made it clear that New Delhi wants to maintain harmonious relations with all its neighbouring countries and sought to resolve border issues peacefully," Singh added.

"Our prime minister has told the Chinese president and requested him that if there is a dispute we should talk," he said.

Referring to Pakistan, Rajnath Singh said the neighbouring country should stop firing on border posts and civilian areas.

"When we get to know about ceasefire violations done by Pakistan or there is some dispute in the context of India-China border, we feel hurt and we feel angered," he said.
