India-China Border Tension: Sources have been quoted as saying that warning shots were carried out by India and China on the northern edge of Pangong Lake in early September. It is reported that India and China fired 100-200 bullets as a “warning” Sources said, the incident took place when Indian army personnel were making a post to keep an eye on Chinese troops.
India has control over the peaks of Finger 3 and 4. The incident took place a few days before Foreign Minister S Jaishankar met his counterpart Wang Yi in Moscow on September 10. Representatives of the two countries had signed an agreement to reduce tensions over ladakh on the line of mutual control.
After the meeting, a joint statement was issued on behalf of the two countries stating that the two countries have agreed on a five-point agreement, which seeks to take steps to negotiate, initiate the process of immediate disengagement, keep a fair distance, reduce tensions and enhance confidence.
On another occasion just last week, China tried to change the status quo by moving towards the presence of Indian troops on the southern bank of The Pangong Lake in Ladakh. China also fired warning shots.
It is reported that the Chinese soldiers were holding spears and rifles and tried to start a battle of a very medieval way. Earlier on the night of June 14, there was a similar violent clash between the two sides in the Galwan Valley, in which 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives. This is the first time in the last 45 years that shots have been fired at LAC. The two sides had indicted each other for the same.
Let’s say that India has recently achieved strategic success by occupying several high-rise areas here. China had made efforts to change the status quo on LAC, which Has been thwarted by India. The Chinese army has carried out several provocative activities in an attempt to capture these high places, but India is strengthening its position. Satellite images surfaced last week showed chinese construction activities on the northern edge of the lake, while new Chinese posts are appearing on the southern edge.
