Tense India-China standoff at the Pangong Tso Lake in Ladakh

The Indian Army assistance to the Chinese nationals comes at a time when the border along the Eastern Ladakh is simmering with tensions following the standoff between the two forces. The Defence Minister of the two countries met in Moscow to defuse the tensions along the Line of Actual Control. Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh issued a statement after the meeting, emphatically stating that the Chinese manoeuvres in the region had been in violation of the bilateral agreement between the two countries.

Singh also stated that while the Indian troops had always taken a very responsible approach towards border management, but at the same time there should also be no doubt about our determination to protect India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
