The current updates, on the Indo-China border conflict, show that the Indian Army has accused China of carrying ‘provocative military movements’ at the border as the Chines troops tried to change the status quo in Ladakh. Both the countries that hold nuclear power have accused each other of crossing the borders that are extremely poorly demarcated. Further, the countries have also accused each other of provoking the fight.
With the last brushing of shoulders that happened on 20th June 2020 at the Indo-China border, the Indian Army had lost 20 of its soldiers where has China didn’t give any official statement regarding its soldiers.
Currently, China has denied the accusations of its troops trying to meddle with the status quo again.
Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson of the Chines foreign ministry stated: “Chinese border troops have always strictly observed the Line of Actual Control and have never crossed the line. The border troops of the two countries have been in communication over territory issues”.
On the other India states, that the army personnel stationed at the border has ‘pre-empted’ the activities taken up by China on “the Southern Bank of Pangong Tso Lake” on 29th August 2020.
The country has also mentioned that though they are committed to having peace at the border they are “also equally determined to protect its territorial integrity”.
Such statements issued by India give a slight hint towards the peace at the Indo-China borders being hampered. As per the analysts, India’s decision of improving infrastructure faculties in remote and vulnerable areas along the borders in Ladakh for easy deployment of troops is what had initially aggravated Beijing leading to a clash in June.
