Chinese border guards did not cross the line of actual control at the border with India. This was stated by Chinese foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao lijian, commenting on reports from new Delhi about another conflict between the military of the two countries.
According to him, “Chinese border guards always strictly observe the line of actual control, they never cross it.” “The border forces of the two sides maintain close contacts on the situation on the ground,” the diplomat stressed.
Earlier, the Indian defense Ministry reported an aggravation of the situation on the border. In new Delhi, the actions of Chinese soldiers were called “provocative”, ” violating the consensus reached during military and diplomatic negotiations over the ongoing confrontation in Eastern Ladakh.” It was noted that the Indian troops strengthened their positions and did not allow the situation on the ground to change.
Recall that the problem of recognizing the border line between the two countries has existed for many years. This year, there have been several conflicts between the military of China and India, with reports of injuries and deaths. Negotiations at the military and diplomatic levels have not yet produced a result that suits both sides.
