China has claimed it has no knowledge about the disappearance of India’s former External Affairs Minister.
The Indian Prime Minister has lambasted his former colleague, labelling them a traitor and reassuring the public they will be found and punished.
The Prime Minister also revealed information regarding terrorist activity in the region.
“We have also been informed the Minister has been fostering insurgency in Western China, and we are appalled by this,” they said.
China used the press opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to a stable Asia, which it says is vital for the world’s economy.
