"There is no change in the Line of Actual Control," Antony said while referring to the LAC that serves as a border between the two countries.

"There is only a difference in perception," he told reporters, referring to a meeting he held with the army corps commander in Ladakh Tuesday.

The minister's clarification follows media reports that China was grabbing land along the Indian border.

Antony, who visited Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday, had also met Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and administrative officials of the Ladakh Hill and Development Council.

"I told them (the army and administrative officials) to study the situation in detail," he said.
