India, China should resolve border issues through direct dialogue

Indian army soldiers are seen after a snowfall at the India China trade route at Nathu-La 55 km north of Gangtok

Indian and Chinese soldiers yelled and hurled stones at one another in the high Himalayas in Indian-controlled Kashmir, Indian officials said Wednesday after an altercation that escalated tensions between two nations already engaged in a lengthy border standoff elsewhere.

Six to seven army vehicles of PLA troops arrived in at Pangong lake in Ladakh.

Indian media alleged that the skirmish ensued after personnel of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) entered the Indian Territory and that the Indian forces had to resort to stone pelting chase them off.The Incident reportedly took place at Pangong Lake, two third of which is controlled by China and the rest comes under India's dominion. An Indian official briefed on the matter also said "flag meetings", or ceremonies involving Chinese and Indian soldiers at five points along the frontier usually held on the August 15 anniversary of India's independence, were cancelled on Tuesday. But on both occasions, their attempts were thwarted by alert Indian troops. However, there were reports of troops from both sides exchanging candies on the occasion on Tuesday.




Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said she did not know the details of the most recent incident.

When the Indian side staked a claim to the area during negotiations in late 1990s, the Chinese army constructed a metal-top road and insisted it was part of Aksai Chin, which is under the latter's control, officials said. The Chinese side is committed to peace and tranquillity of the China-India border. The two sides have frequently accused each other of territorial intrusions, but clashes are rare.

China has repeatedly asked India to unilaterally withdraw from the Doklam area, or face the prospect of an escalation.
