China denies report of plan to build tunnel to divert Brahmaputra waters


BEIJING: China nowadays turned down as “untrue and untrue” a media report that it was setting up to make a 1,000- km long tunnel to divert water from the Brahmaputra river in Tibet near to Arunachal Pradesh to the parched Xinjiang area.

Hong Kong-centered South China Morning Post yesterday reported that Chinese engineers ended up testing tactics that could be employed to make the tunnel, the world’s longest.

“This is untrue. This is a untrue report,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying advised a media briefing when questioned about the report.

China will continue on to connect great worth to cross- border river cooperation, she reported.

In accordance to the report, the proposed tunnel, which would fall down from the world’s maximum plateau in multiple sections related by waterfalls, would
present water in China’s biggest administrative division+
, comprising wide swathes of deserts and dry grasslands.

The water would be diverted from the Yarlung Tsangpo River in southern Tibet, which turns into the river Brahmaputra the moment it enters India, to the Taklamakan desert in Xinjiang, the report had reported.

India as riparian state has
by now flagged its worries to China+
about different dams becoming designed by it on the Brahmaputra river, which is acknowledged in China as Yarlung Tsangpo.

Beijing has been assuring India and Bangladesh that its dams ended up not designed to storing water.
