"You must be very clear that boundary of India China border area has not been totally delimited and we have disputes in the eastern section of the boundary".
During his two-day visit to India last week, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe attended the annual India-Japan Summit to take forward bilateral and strategic ties between the two countries.
Reacting to it, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Hunyin had said, "You also mentioned Act East policy. Under such circumstances, we believe that any third party should respect the efforts made by China and India to settle the disputes through negotiations and any third party should not meddle in the disputes between China and India over territorial sovereignty in any form".
For example, Mr. Abe said North Korea was a "joint" challenge for India and Japan, and the statement contained a phrase about holding countries "that have supported North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes" accountable, obviously aimed at Pyongyang's benefactors in Beijing. Both the title of the joint statement, "Toward a free, open and prosperous Indo-Pacific", and substantive paragraphs on cooperation in the region, indicate a much closer alignment between India and Japan in countering China's influence in the South China Sea, its forays into the Indian Ocean, and investments in South Asia and Africa. "This is China's position", she said. Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said: "We agreed on a Japan-India Act East Forum which will essentially the explore the possibilities of involving Japan in the development of North East infrastructure".

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. His comments drew a rare public statement from GCHQ denouncing the allegation as "utterly ridiculous".
Reports say that the UNCLOS was mentioned atleast four time in the 2016 joint statement between the two countries.
In an indirect reference to Japan, Hua said, "We also hope various parties can uphold the rights to freedom of navigation of over flights by countries in various waters".
About the connectivity projects and the implicit criticism of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Hua said, "I haven't seen any innuendos". India and Japan also condemned terrorism emanating from Pakistan and urged Islamabad to bring perpetrators of terror to justice. "We hope that the development of normal relations between Japan and India can play a constructive role for the mutual trust and cooperation between regional countries and the peace, stability and development of the region".
