After 45 years, someone lost his life on the border
The two armies have been facing a face-off in Ladakh since the beginning of last month. Last month, troops from the two countries grappled in Pangong in eastern Ladakh and Nakula in Sikkim and tensions have prevailed since then. Since then, a large number of troops from both countries have been stationed on the border. Earlier, a soldier was killed on the Indo-China border in 1975, 45 years ago. The Indian Army patrol was then attacked by the Chinese army on the LAC in Arunachal Pradesh. Earlier in 1967, there was a violent clash between the two troops on the border in Nathu La.
The Indian media is also talking about the loss of Chinese troops, but it has not yet been confirmed, nor has China said anything. It is said that it will have an impact on all bilateral relations between the two countries and the agreement reached to maintain peace along the border between the two countries since 1993 will also be affected. The border between the two countries has been tense for the past 40 days and no solution has been found so far. India said on Tuesday that China should respect the line of mutual control. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Indian troops violated the border twice on Monday and attacked the Chinese army in a provocative attack. Both China and India accused each other of not respecting the LAC.
Replying to media queries after the incident, Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “The senior commanders’ meeting on June 6 was quite good and agreed to the process of reducing tensions. Thereafter, there was a series of meetings of the commanders on the spot to implement the consensus at the ground level which was made between the senior officers.” Anurag Srivastava added, “We expected everything to happen easily but the Chinese side withdrew from the agreement that the Line of Mutual Control (LAC) in the Galwan Valley would be respected. There were casualties from both sides, which could have been avoided if the Chinese side had properly adhered to the high-level consensus,” he said.
