New Delhi: Indian troops thwarted renewed Chinese aggression in Eastern Ladakh on the night of August 29/30, Indian Defence Ministry stated here today. A Brigade Commander level Flag Meeting is in progress at Chushul to resolve the issues, it added.
Giving details, Colonel Aman Anand, Indian Army spokesperson, said China’s People’s Liberation Army carried out provocative military movements to change the status quo. However, an alert Indian army “pre-empted this PLA activity on the Southern Bank of Pangong Tso Lake, and undertook measures to “strengthen our positions “and thwart Chinese intentions to unilaterally change facts on ground.
This has been the latest instance of repeated Chinese incursions and in the process China violated the previous consensus arrived at during military and diplomatic engagements during the ongoing standoff in Eastern Ladakh.
“The Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace and tranquility through dialogue, but is also equally determined to protect its territorial integrity,” the Army spokesperson assured.
