This meeting is scheduled at 6 pm and comes up in the backdrop of India-China border disputes and transgressions over the stand-off at the strategic points of Ladakh.
After India has occupied strategic points in the Eastern Ladakh, Chinese troops are continuously trying to transgress and on Monday, soldiers fired in the air in order to attempt to get close to Indian positions across Line of Actual Control (LAC).
As per Indian Army’s statement, Chinese troops are “blatantly violating agreements and carrying out aggressive manoeuvres.” And no wonder, Chinese troops are stating the same that Indian army is violating the rules.
Army gave statement to clarify said, “Chinese are attempting to close-in with one of our forward positions along the LAC and when dissuaded by own troops, People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers fired a few rounds in the air in an attempt to intimidate.”
India recently overlooked and outshined China by capturing the strategic heights of Pangong Lake’s southern bank. Also recently thwarted the Chinese troops to transgress into Indian areas near the southern bank of Pangong Tso near Chushul in Ladakh.
Last Friday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh warned his Chinese counterpart General Wei Fenghe on the subsidiary of the SCO dialogue in Moscow said, “attempts by Chinese troops to unilaterally alter the status quo along the LAC was in violation of the bilateral agreements, and Beijing should work with New Delhi for complete disengagement from all friction areas including Pangong Tso.”
