The Chinese statement came days after China denied entry to the first batch of nearly 50 Indian pilgrims who were scheduled to travel to Kailash Mansarovar through the Nathu La pass.
The pilgrims were stopped by Chinese officials at the border. They were scheduled to cross over to the Chinese side on June 19 but failed to do so due to inclement weather and had to wait at the base camp.
External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said that some difficulties were being experienced in the movement of pilgrims through the Nathu La pass and India has taken up the matter with China.
