BHOPAL (PTI): Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor said there has been "no occupation" of Indian Territory by Chinese troops.

"Quite a large number of these reports are not correct. I am trying to assure everyone here and to the nation that there have been no major issues of Chinese transgressions so to say.

They come up to certain areas. We also have our perceived Line of Control up to where we also go. There have been no occupation of Indian territory," the General told reporters on Tuesday.

The Army chief was reacting to recent media reports about the Chinese transgression in the country.

When asked about Pakistan's offer to mediate on the issue of Chinese intrusion, he said there is no such proposal and if any then the Government will take a decision on it.

Referring to the infiltration bids being made from across the border he said that efforts are more from the South (Kashmir) side and from the area manned by Border Security Force (BSF).

On Sukna land deal case, General Kapoor said since the matter is sub-judice it is not proper on his part to comment on it.

When asked whether India should stop talking to Pakistan in view of the terrorist attacks on the country, he said political leadership will decide on the matter.

The Army chief was here to take part in the foundation laying ceremony of a War Memorial to be constructed at the Arera Hills with an estimated cost of Rs 16 crore.
