    Now, PLA's fleet of boats ventures into Indian side of Pangong Lake

    [​IMG]

    Even as the controversy over Chinese incursion nearly 10 km inside the Indian territory in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir refuses to die, yet another provocation by the neighbouring country has now come to light.

    After the land grab, Chinese forces have been making their way into the Indian side of the huge Pangong Tso Lake, through which the Line of Actual Control passes.

    Headlines Today secured images of Chinese boats that intruded into the Indian side of the lake. Equipped with over 20 well-armed boats, the Chinese fleet violated Pangong Lake water space.

    The People's Liberation Army (PLA) has been virtually running in circles around Indian troops in this space. In the past, Chinese boats have even disabled Indian boats. In 2000, Chinese boats had even rammed into two Indian patrol boats in the lake.

    Chinese army helicopters violated Indian airspace: sources

    Leh: India today said that it hopes to use agreements with China to "resolve peacefully" the stand-off in Ladakh, where New Delhi says soldiers from the People's Liberation Army have set up camp in Indian territory. "We have asked the Chinese side to maintain the status quo in this sector" said Syed Akbaruddin, spokesperson for the Foreign Affairs Ministry. "By this I mean the status quo prior to this incident," he said.

    Here are 10 big developments in this story:

    • India and China are holding a second flag meeting today to discuss a stand-off over nearly a dozen Chinese soldiers who have set up a remote camp some 10 km (6 miles) inside territory claimed by India in Ladakh.
    • Indian government officials have confirmed that on the night of April 15, two helicopters gave support to the Chinese as they set up temporary posts on the Indian side of the disputed border.
    • China has denied that its troops have crossed into Indian territory. "Our troops are patrolling on the Chinese side of the actual line of control and have never trespassed the line," said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying yesterday.
    • The de facto border separating China and India is known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC). While it has never been formally demarcated, the countries signed two accords to maintain peace in frontier areas in 1993 and 1996.
    • Military commanders at the Brigadier level from the two sides had met last week, but failed to break the deadlock.
    • Till yesterday, China had not agreed to India's request for a second flag meeting, citing the non-availability of their senior officers, sources said.
    • Yesterday, Defence Minister AK Antony said, "India will take every step to protect its interests." The Indian army has set up its own temporary camp just 500 meters (1600 feet) from the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers after the incident on April 15
    • Though small incursions across the Line of Actual Control are common, it is rare for either country to set up camp so deep.
    • The assessment in the Indian government is that the Chinese will eventually withdraw but could use this "occupation" to lay claims to the area at a later stage of border negotiations.
    • The latest incident took place at Daulat Beg Oldie, where India established a landing strip during the 1962 war. At 5,100 meters (16,700 feet), the strip is one of the world's highest. It was reopened in 2008.

    India asks China to revert to status quo in Ladakh

    India on Tuesday asked China to revert to the status quo position in Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) sector in Ladakh where troops of both countries were in a face-to-face situation after Chinese forces intruded nearly 10 km inside Indian territory eight days ago.

    “We have asked the Chinese side to maintain the status quo in this sector (of the western border),” official spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs Syed Akbaruddin said, adding, “by this I mean the status quo prior to this incident.”

    He also added that “we see this as a face-to-face situation between border personnel of two sides due to differences on their alignment of Line of Actual Control".

    The term “face-to-face” is not something that India has “conjured up”, it is something that is referred to in 2005 Protocol for implementation of CBMs in military field in the LAC in India-China border areas, he said.

    While referring to the relevant provision in the protocol, he said, under it “if the border personnel of the two sides come in a face-to-face situation due to differences on the alignment of the line of actual control or any other reason, they shall exercise self-restraint and take all necessary steps to avoid an escalation of the situation.

    “Both sides shall also enter into immediate consultations through diplomatic and/or other available channels to review the situation and prevent any escalation of tension.”

    The Official Spokesperson’s remarks came even as the local military commanders of India and China held a flag meeting today in a bid to resolve the situation arising out of the incursion. The meeting was held in Daulat Beg Oldi sector.

    Speaking about the steps taken by the government since the incident on April 15, the spokesperson said, India raised the issue with China last week immediately after the Chinese incursion came to light.

    Apart from Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai summoning the Chinese Ambassador to South Block, Gautam Bambawale, Joint Secretary in MEA, who is heading the India-China joint working mechanism to deal with issues on the boundary from the Indian side, spoke to his counterpart in Beijing last week, emphasising on the need to resolve the issue.

    The Chinese side said they will look into the issue and respond accordingly.

    However, when contacted the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi reiterated the comments made by their Foreign Ministry spokesperson in Beijing yesterday.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying had said yesterday that “China’s frontier troops have been abiding by the agreement between the two countries and abiding by the LAC agreed by the two countries.

    “Our frontier troops have been patrolling on the China’s side of LAC”, Mr Hua had said, adding, “Our troops are patrolling on the Chinese side of the LAC and have never trespassed the line”.
