New Delhi -- In a provocative act, China has
refused permission to Northern Commander Lt Gen B
S Jaswal to visit that country because he belongs
to a "sensitive" area of Jammu and Kashmir.

Reacting strongly to this, India has put on hold
visits by Chinese military officials till the matter is resolved.

The Indian government said that China must be sensitive to its concerns.

"While we value our exchanges with China, there
must be sensitivity to each others' concerns. Our
dialogue with China on these issues is ongoing,"
External Affairs ministry spokesman said in a statement.

The visit by a General-rank officer to China as
part of defence exchanges was agreed upon between
the two countries in January during the annual
defence dialogue, sources said here today.

The visit was fixed for July but it was not
decided at that time as to who will be send by India, the sources said.
