Crossing lines in LAC: China and India in unexpected Tinderbox

With political diplomacy and military talks between China and India hitting rock bottom, the fresh accusations and counter accusations from both sides on shots being fired on September 7, over military maneuvers in gaining more grounds in the high altitude frontier Himalayas is getting riskier and riskier by day. Both sides have observed a long-held protocol not using firearms on the sensitive parts of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

According to Chinese government mouthpiece, Global Times, “China doesn’t want a border war with #India. But if the Indian side misinterprets China’s goodwill and intends to deter the PLA with warning shots, its moves will backfire. China will never concede for the sake of avoiding a war”.

ANI late Monday night reported on an incident of firing that took place on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh sector where troops of India and China have been engaged in a stand-off for over three months, saying more details were awaited.

Global Times claims that Indian troops crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near the south bank of Pangong Tso Lake on Monday. “The Indian army’s firing of shots for 1st time in more than four decades in #China- #India border is an extremely dangerous act and set a vile precedent that broke the traditional tacit understanding by both sides of not using firearms”.

China correspondent from The Hindu, reported of a new statement by PLA on September 7 late evening, saying “Western Theater Command accuses Indian troops of crossing LAC again on the south bank of Pangong Lake on September 7 and of firing warning shots, describes incident as ‘serious military provocations of a very bad nature”.
