Chinese and Indian Military Clashed in the Himalayas

Chinese and Indian Military Clashed in the Himalayas

The some 3,500 km (2,175 mile)-long unmarked mountain border between China and India has been a matter of dispute since the latter's declaration of independence from the British Empire in 1947, and especially after the 1959 anti-Chinese Uprising in Tibet, after which India granted asylum to the Dalai Lama.

"We urge the Indian side to scrupulously abide by relevant agreements, protocols and rules between the two countries and earnestly respect the 1959 line of control and earnestly protect the peace and stability of the border region".

"We always patrol along the Chinese line of control".

While India and China are already locked in a standoff in Sikkim over the Doklam plateau, the Chinese media has time and again raked up the Kashmir issue and threatened to enter the region.

The official said the event was marked more informally, with troops from both sides exchanging candies at several places, including the Doklam area, where the stand-off has lasted nearly two months.

Officials in the Indian Army insisted that "sweets were exchanged between Indian Army and PLA troops in "multiple border locations including in the area of Doklam".

After Chinese troopers found their path blocked by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, they began hurling stones, prompting a swift retaliation by Indian border guards.

"Personnel from both sides received some injuries in the stone-pelting".

India has said it is ready to pull back troops if China does so too, an offer Beijing has outright rejected. Doklam is a disputed territory between Bhutan and China.

The Indian defence and external affairs ministries did not immediately respond to inquiries from the South China Morning Post, nor did the Chinese defence ministry.

The two sides have frequently accused each other of territorial intrusions, but clashes are rare. One third of the lake is under Indian control while rest is with China.

Incursion by the Chinese was reportedalong the banks of famous Pangong lake in Ladakh.

The two nuclear-armed neighbours fought a brief war in 1962 in India's border state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Sources say that there was a scuffle between both sides.

Tensions along the LAC rose in 2014 when Chinese soldiers moved into territory claimed by India, sparking a two-week military stand-off that overshadowed a visit by China's President Xi Jinping.
