Clarification: No Highway Construction

(By Chinese Embassy in India)
(2004/08/12)

An Indian newspaper report on August 11 alleged that the blockade of the river flow of the Pareechu in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China by large-scale landslide could have been caused by some road construction activity on the Chinese side in the region. It is the established fact that, within a radius of 30 kilometers around the landslide site, there is absolutely no highway nor any highway construction. The landslide is simply a calamity caused by heavy rainfall and natural landslide. The fabricated speculation of the report stands baseless.
