India-China Border: Chinese Accuse Indian Army Of Firing In Ladakh
In the early hours, China claimed that the Indian Army crossed the LAC and fired warning shots near the Pangong Tso lake in eastern Ladakh.
China, in the early hours of Tuesday (September 8), claimed that the Indian Army crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC). It further also claimed that the Indian troops fired ‘warning shots’ near the Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh to which their soldiers took ‘countermeasures’. Spokesperson of China’s Western Theater Command, Colonel Zhang Shiuli, said that India, while acting provocative, illegally crossed the LAC in Shenpao mountain near the south bank of Pangong Tso lake. He said that during the operation, the Indian Army opened fire and threatened our soldiers.
China further accused India of severely violating agreements between the two sides and blamed that it is working towards increasing regional tensions, calling it an act of provocation that leads to misunderstandings. Zhang Shiuli urged the Indian side to stop this dangerous game immediately and asked the Indian soldiers to return to their border. Along with this, he suggested an investigation into the matter and taking action against the soldiers who opened fire so that such an incident does not happen again.
