Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in a face-off along the Line of Actual Control (LoAC) in the Arunachal Pradesh sector as the patrols of two countries came face to face at one location. Sources in the defence establishment said the face-off took place between the two sides last week and the troops disengaged after the talks between the two local commanders as per existing protocols.

As per sources, the face-off lasted for a few hours before the troops disengaged and Indian troops outnumbered the Chinese at the location. There was no damage to the Indian defences in the face-off that took place between the two sides at the location, they said.

Since the India- border has not been formally demarcated, there is a difference in perception of LoAC between the countries.

“Peace and tranquillity in these areas of differing perceptions have been possible by adherence to existing agreements and protocols between the two countries,” they said.

Sources said both sides undertake patrolling activities up to their line of perception.

Whenever patrols of both sides physically meet, the situation is managed according to established protocols and mechanisms agreed by both sides. Physical engagement can last for a few hours prior to disengaging as per mutual understanding, they said.

Additionally, the sources stated that both sides undertake patrolling activities up to their line of perception and whenever patrols physically meet, the situation is managed according to established protocols.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said India has reiterated that the “provocative” behaviour and “unilateral” measures by the Chinese side resulted in disturbance of peace and tranquillity in the area.

“It is our expectation that will work towards early of the remaining issues along the in eastern Ladakh while fully abiding by bilateral agreements and protocols,” Bagchi said at a media briefing here.

The spokesman reminded the reporters that External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had held discussions with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Tajikistan on the sidelines of the summit last month and conveyed India’s stand.

Earlier in August, India and had disengaged troops from the Gogra heights area and moved them back to their permanent bases.

In the 12th round of military talks, India and had agreed to disengage troops from patrolling point 17A, one of the friction points between the two countries in the eastern Ladakh region.
