Stand off between India and China continue in Himalyan region


The skirmishes and tension continue between India and China in the Himalayan region around the issue of border line. The two countries are also locked in an impasse in the Doklam area, which borders China, India and Bhutan.

China’s foreign ministry said in an official statement that “the Indian side must immediately and unconditionally withdraw all personnel and equipment from the Chinese soil” while reiterating that its troops had been inside Chinese territory when the confrontation took place.

An official statement from India’s foreign ministry said that “there is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the border areas between India and China.”It added that differences in perception of the LAC have caused situations on the ground that could have been avoided if there was a consensus on the border lines.

The latest skirmish occurred even as the two armies continued a two-month stand-off further east, near a plateau known as Doklam in India and Donglang in China. Since the confrontation began in June, each side has reinforced its troops and called on the other to retreat. The two nations fought a war over the border in 1962 and disputes remain unresolved in several areas, which cause tensions to escalate from time to time.
