Face-Off Between Indian Army & Chinese Troops In Ladakh Ends After Talks: Army Sources

Ladakh: The border tensions between India and China escalated when there was a face-off between soldiers of the Indian Army and the Chinese Army in Ladakh.
Indian soldiers were patrolling at the northern bank of Pangong lake on Wednesday morning when they were stopped by Chinese soldiers. Two-thirds of the lake in the high-altitude region that extends from Tibet to Ladakh is controlled by China.
Soon, the standoff between the two sides started, with both calling in reinforcements and it continued till the evening.
“The matter has been de-escalated and disengaged fully after delegation-level talks yesterday. This occurs due to differing perceptions of LAC (Line of Actual Control). There are established mechanisms to resolve such occurrences,” an Army source said.
The Army also stated that such incidents happen due to differing perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and there are established mechanisms to resolve such differences. Incidentally, the confrontation took place in the same area where Indian and Chinese troops had engaged in a bitter scuffle during the Doklam standoff.
