China's state media has issued a warning to India over New Delhi's plan to deploy BraMos cruise missiles to the border state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The PLA Daily, an official mouthpiece of People's Liberation Army (PLA), over the weekend published an editorial sternly warning the Indian government against its decision to deploy supersonic cruise missiles to the Himalayan state along the India-China border.

The PLA Daily warned that the deployment could invite countermeasures from Beijing. The military newspaper said that the proposed deployment poses a serious threat to Chinese provinces of Tibet and Yunnan. It also added the move might negatively affect the stability of the border regions along the Sino-India border.
"Deploying BrahMos missiles is bound to increase competitiveness and confrontation in Sino-Indian relations and bring a negative influence to the stability of the region," the editorial said, according to India Today. "India deploying supersonic missiles on the border has exceeded its own needs for self-defense and poses a serious threat to China's Tibet and Yunnan provinces."
Earlier this month, the Narendra Modi government approved the deployment of the fourth BrahMos regiment to Arunachal Pradesh. The regiment includes around 100 missiles, five mobile launchers, and a mobile command post.
The move comes amid growing tension between two countries. India and China have been engaged in a bitter dispute over their shared Himalayan border. Sino-India bilateral ties have further soured after China blocked India's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) in June.
