There is once again big news about the eastern Ladakh Border Dispute in eastern Ladakh. The situation has once again worsened between the troops of India and China in the eastern Ladakh sector. The situation worsened when Chinese troops tried to infiltrate Indian territory on the southern bank of Pangang Lake, after which Indian troops tried to stop them. The Central government has said that the Indian Army has foiled an attempt by the Chinese army to change the status quo once again by instigating the provocative military movements.
“The Chinese army carried out military activities to change the status quo,” the government said in a statement issued on Monday, “but the Indian Army realised their activity and foiled it,” the Defence Ministry statement said, adding that the attempt was made by the Chinese army in the night of August 29 and 30. No official information on whether anyone was injured in the operation has been found.
“The People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) violated the agreements reached in military and diplomatic negotiations to resolve the ongoing dispute in eastern Ladakh and carried out military activities in an attempt to change the status quo,” the Defence Ministry statement said, adding, “Indian Army personnel were aware of this activity on the southern coast of Pangong Tso Lake and they have taken up their activities on the southern coast of Pangong Tso Lake.” Took the necessary steps to strengthen the situation and thwarted Chinese intentions,” he said.
In its statement, the Defence Ministry stressed that the Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace along the border through dialogue but is “equally determined to maintain the integrity of its borders,” the government said, saying that the brigadier commander’s level talks are continuing in Chushul to resolve the dispute between the armies of the two countries. NDTV is not making public any detail about India’s military strategy in the region.
In many parts of Ladakh, there is a dispute over the border between the two countries. At the beginning of the year, China had set up camps in many places. Five rounds of talks have also been held between the two countries to resolve the issue but the matter is not fully resolved. In the core commander-level talks, about 5-6 times so far, the two countries have agreed to bring back the same situation, but the Chinese side has not fulfilled its promise at the grassroots level, but it has increased its troops on the border. In a violent clash between the two countries on June 15 in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh, 20 soldiers lost their lives while guarding the border. More than 45 soldiers were also reported killed in clashes in China.
