Pew Delhi: India on Tuesday announced that it would attend the ceremony for presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize to Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo in Oslo, Norway, on December 10.

China has officially asked nations not to attend the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, stating that doing so would be tantamount to interfering in the country's internal affairs.

Comment: Time to stop appeasing China

India had remained undecided on attending the ceremony taking into account Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao's visit the country this month.
