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

Chinese military officials sought a flag meeting with Indian officials on Wednesday, a day after their men crossed the de-facto border and exchanged blows with troopers in Ladakh, an incident that the government in Beijing said it was not aware of.

"The MoD sources said, "Please refer to certain queries regarding confrontation with PLA (People's Liberation Army) troops in Arunachal Pradesh".

"PLA soldiers tried to enter the Indian side in two areas - Finger Four and Finger Five - twice on Tuesday morning".

"The Chinese side is committed to peace and tranquillity of the China-India border".

Continuing its adventurist attitude and spreading border tension with India, Chinese troops chose India's Independence Day to clash with their Indian counterparts in the Pangong lake area in Ladakh.

Asked to comment on the incident, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said, "I am not aware of the information".

It was also reported that several Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones, and in the ensuing melee, there were minor injuries on both sides. The report also said the new decision marks a shift from past United States governments policies and it will replace the dialogue format between foreign and commerce ministers of both countries started by Barack Obama administration.

The crisis began on June 16 when the Indian Army prevented Chinese troops from building a road in Doklam.

It said that China is way more powerful than India, but still it doesn't project a sphere of influence.

Both countries' troops have already been embroiled in a seven-week-long standoff on the Doklam plateau in another part of the remote Himalayan region near their disputed frontier. "And we urge the India side to abide by the Line of Actual Control", she said.

The two sides have frequently accused each other of intrusions into each other's territories, but clashes are rare.

Asked whether there is any progress to resolve the standoff at the Doklam area in the Sikkim sector, which has now entered the third month, Ms. Hua reiterated China's stand that Indian troops illegally trespassed into Chinese territory and they should unconditionally withdraw.
