Chi­nese app pulls down In­dia’s posts on con­flict

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HTSPOTLIGH­T -

BEI­JING:Chi­nese so­cial me­dia app, WeChat, has re­moved posts of the Em­bassy of In­dia (EoI) re­gard­ing the In­dia-China bor­der con­flict.

It has cited “en­dan­ger­ing na­tional se­cu­rity” and “di­vulging state se­crets” as the rea­sons for the re­moval of the posts.

The EoI posts in­cluded Prime Min­is­ter Narendra Modi’s re­marks on the In­dia-China bor­der sit­u­a­tion, de­tails of a phone call be­tween the In­dian and Chi­nese for­eign min­is­ters held on Thurs­day and a state­ment by the ex­ter­nal af­fairs min­istry spokesper­son. For two of the posts, a pop-up win­dow said that the posts were “deleted by the au­thor”. For the third post, which was a state­ment by the MEA spokesper­son, the pop-up mes­sage read: “Un­able to view this con­tent be­cause it vi­o­lates reg­u­la­tions”. HTC
