India condemns China’s issuance of stapled visas to players from Arunachal Pradesh as “unacceptable.”

India strongly criticized China’s issuance of “stapled visas” to sportspersons from Arunachal Pradesh, asserting it as “unacceptable.” External affairs ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi expressed India’s right to respond suitably to such actions, emphasizing that domicile or ethnicity should not be a basis for discrimination in the visa regime for Indian citizens. The decision to suspend the visit of a Wushu team to China for the World University Games occurred after three players from Arunachal Pradesh were given stapled visas, while others received regular visas. China’s claim that Arunachal is part of its territory has been consistently rejected by India, which also rejected China’s renaming of places in the state as an attempt to alter the reality of Arunachal Pradesh being an integral part of India. This is not the first instance of China issuing stapled visas to Indians from Arunachal Pradesh, prompting strong reactions from New Delhi in the past.
