According to news agency ANI, army sources said, “The first incident occurred between 29 to 31 August when Indian troops failed Chinese troops' attempt to capture a height located on the southern shore of Pangong Tso Lake.” The second incident of firing between the soldiers of the two countries took place near Mukhpari peak on 7 September.
Army sources said, 'The third incident occurred on September 8 on the northern shore of Pangong Tso Lake. In this, soldiers from both sides fired more than 100 rounds. Such heavy firing occurred because the Chinese soldiers were behaving very aggressively. ' These incidents clearly show the extent to which tension between the two countries has increased.
These incidents occurred at a time when India's Foreign Minister S Jaishankar was in Russia's capital Moscow to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting. Here he also met his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi. Issues related to the border dispute between the two were also discussed. The two also discussed how to resolve these issues.
During the discussion, the two agreed to hold Corps Commander-level talks. However, the Chinese side is yet to decide the date and time for these talks. Several rounds of talks have been held between April and May at the military and diplomatic level between the two countries. However, they have not yet seen any strong results.
