On the Line of Actual Control (LAC) of East Ladakh, India-China have had several encounters last year. At times violent confrontations also took place between the two armies. Then after several rounds of meeting, the situation came under control and the Chinese army was forced to retreat. In the midst of the peace that has been going on at the border for the past several months, some such reports have also come out which said that there has been a recent confrontation between the Indo-Chinese troops in Galvan Valley. However, this collision was quite minor. The Indian Army has issued a clarification on these reports coming in the media. The army has rejected these reports outright.
‘India-China have not met face to face’
In a media report, the Indian Army issued a statement saying, “Confrontation between Indian and Chinese soldiers in the Galvan Valley has come to the fore. We make it clear that in the first week of May, 2021, there has been no such incident in the Galvan Valley of East Ladakh among the soldiers of India-China. Violent clashes took place between the two sides, in which 20 Indian soldiers were martyred. On the other hand, many Chinese soldiers were also killed, but the neighboring country never released the correct figures. India then took revenge by China and drove it back from many places.
Chinese army reached LAC again to practice
China has once again started acting near the LAC. The Chinese army is conducting military exercises on its side in the depth areas of eastern Ladakh. At the same time, seeing the practice, the Indian Army has also become fully alert and is ready to respond to any action. Recently sources had reported that the Chinese have been coming to these areas for many years, where they practice during the summer time. Last year too, he had come to these areas under the guise of practice and moved aggressively from here towards East Ladakh. Chinese troops are in their traditional areas and in some places they are present at a distance of 100 kilometers. They have been seen building bunkers in their area and are working to strengthen their infrastructure.
A media report suggested a minor face-off between Indian & Chinese troops in Galwan Valley. It is clarified that no such face-off has taken place between Indian and Chinese troops at Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh in the first week of May 2021 as reported: Indian Army
