The military representation first met for five hours on Monday and then again yesterday for an undisclosed amount of time.
China, on the other, has denied having crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Instead, it has pointed the finger back at India for ‘illegal trespassing’ and conducting ‘flagrant provocations’ flaring up border tensions.
There was no physical altercation
Late last night, India’s Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson, Anurag Shrivastava, told the press, “Indian side is firmly committed to resolve all outstanding issues along the LAC in the Western Sector through peaceful dialogue.”
He added that communication is happening along both diplomatic and military channels to prevent China’s frontline troops from taking such ‘proactive actions’.
According to the Ministry of Defence, the attempt of the Chinese to break past the LAC was ‘thwarted’ by the Indian Army strengthening their positions along the border. It clarified that there was no physical altercation between the two sides.
Both India and China may well be telling the truth in their respective eyes because the border, along with the ‘Finger Area’ at Pangong Tso is interpreted differently by both. India believes the boundary lies at Finger 8, while China believes it to be at Finger 2.
