 India claims Chinese troops

Soldiers from India and China clashed along the disputed border on Friday, India's defense minister said Tuesday, in the latest act of violence on the disputed border since June 2020, when soldiers from both countries have been killed.

Rajnath Singh, speaking to lawmakers in parliament, said Friday's clash in the Tawang sector in the eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh began when Chinese troops “invaded Indian territory.” and “unilaterally tried to change the status quo” along the disputed border near the Yangtze. Singh said that no Indian soldiers were seriously injured, and troops from both sides were withdrawn from the area shortly thereafter.

Singh said local warlords met on Sunday, to discuss the dispute, and the Government of India has communicated with China through diplomatic channels. There was no comment from the Chinese side.

On Monday, the Indian army said in a statement that troops from both sides were slightly injured during Friday's clashes.

For decades, India and China have been arguing furiously over the Line of Actual Control, a loose demarcation line that separates Chinese and Indian-held territories from Ladakh in the west to the eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, which China claims India and China fought from abroad in 1962.

In recent years, soldiers from both sides have patrolled areas along the disputed border. the encroaching forces often come into contact, and the two giants of Asia accuse each other of “invading troops”; into each other's territory.
