Nearly 200 Chinese troops stopped in Arunachal LAC in recent face-off with Indian troops
ITANAGAR: In the recent face-off of the Indian and Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh nearly 200 PLA soldiers were intercepted.
The clash between Indian and Chinese forces in LAC, Arunachal, took place last week during a routine patrol near the Chinese border.
Indian troops, according to reports, intercepted nearly 200 Chinese soldiers near the border. After the local commanders settled the matter, both sides’ forces disengaged.
However, during the engagement, no damage was done to the Indian defenses.
Meanwhile, India said on Thursday that it expects China to act quickly to resolve the remaining issues along eastern Ladakh’s boundaries while adhering to bilateral agreements and norms.
Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, said India has reaffirmed that China’s “provocative” behavior and “unilateral” moves have disrupted the region’s peace and tranquility.
Bagchi, on the other hand, refused to comment on such military matters, claiming that the Ministry of Defence would be entitled to do so.
“We expect China to act to resolve the remaining concerns along the line of actual control in eastern Ladakh as soon as possible, while completely complying by bilateral agreements and norms,” Bagchi stated in a press conference.
He further mentioned that External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met with his Chinese counterparts Wang Yi on the sidelines of the SCO conference in Tajikistan last month and relayed India’s position.
