The Indian government has rejected the Chinese claim of firing by the Indian Army on the southern bank of Lake Pangong in eastern Ladakh. China is blaming the Indian Army by firing the LAC itself. But India has once again removed the veil from the lies of sugar. India has issued a statement saying that the PLA soldiers have taken provocation action. India has categorically stated that the Indian Army has not fired nor crossed the LAC i.e. the Line of Actual Control. In some places, the People’s Liberation Army has fired.
Indeed, on Monday night, the Chinese Army claimed that the Indian Army opened fire on the southern bank of Pangong Lake, violating the Line of Actual Control. In response to this, on Tuesday, the Indian Army said that the army of the dragon himself fired and is blaming us. India said that China is continuously violating the agreement and adopting an aggressive attitude. While negotiations continue between the two countries at the military, diplomatic and political levels.
China takes action on LAC: Indian Army
According to the statement, ‘On 07 September 2020, Chinese troops tried to get close to one of our forward positions with LAC and when their own troops stopped them, Chinese troops did some aerial firing to provoke their own troops. Even after such provocation, Indian soldiers showed great restraint and showed their mature behavior.
The statement further said that the Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace and tranquility, although it is also committed to protecting national integrity and sovereignty at all costs. The statement of the Indian Army said that the statement issued by the Western Theater Command of China was to mislead their own people and the international community.
PLA aggression again over border, tense situation, negotiations continue
The Twitter handle of the Chinese government newspaper ‘Global Times’ quoted a Western Theater Command spokesperson as saying, “The Indian Army once again illegally illegally attacked the LAC on Monday near the southern bank of Pangong Lake in the hills of Shenpao.” Violated.” A second Global Times tweet quoted the spokesperson as saying, “Chinese troops were forced to retaliate to stabilize the situation after the Indian troops opened a warning firing on the PLA’s Border Patrol troops.”
Indeed, China has made this claim at a time when the foreign ministers of the two countries are scheduled to meet on 10 September at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) foreign ministers’ meeting in Moscow. A day before leaving for this meeting, on Monday, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said that India-China relations are directly affected by the unrest on the borders. During an interview, he made it clear that relations between the two countries cannot be seen as separate from the border dispute.
China claims Indian army crosses LAC and fires patrol
Significantly, the tension along the Line of Actual Control in East Ladakh has been there for the last few months. On the night of 29 and 30 August, Indian troops not only stopped the Chinese army trying to capture the mountain peaks on the LAC but also took positions on the peaks on the southern side of Pangong Lake. The shape of the Pangong Lake area is such that whatever army occupies the peaks of these mountains near the southern shore, it will get an edge over the whole area.
On the night of 15–16 June this year, the dragon soldiers on the LAC attempted to change the status quo and suddenly attacked Indian soldiers in the Galvan Valley with barbed wire in an iron rod. Due to this nefarious act of Chinese army, 20 soldiers of India were martyred. The Indian Army gave a befitting reply to this, in retaliation, 43 Chinese soldiers were killed. China had admitted that its soldiers were also casualties but it never confirmed the number. Since then there has been a state of tension on the LAC.
