New Delhi: Tension between the Indian and Chinese border troops flared up once again on Wednesday as soldiers of the two sides engaged in a prolonged confrontation in eastern Ladakh.
The face-off began on the northern bank of the 134-km-long Pangong Tso, two-thirds of which is controlled by China as it extends into Tibet.
According to reports, the Indian troops were patrolling the northern bank of Pangong Tso when they were confronted by People’s Liberation Army soldiers, who objected to their presence. This led to a scuffle between the rival soldiers, with both sides sending some reinforcements to the area.
However, the tension eased after the delegation-level talks led by brigadier-rank officers was held by the two sides.
Reportedly, India has lodged a complaint and asked for a Border Personnel Meeting to resolve the issue.
