NEW DELHI: Two days after the defence ministers of India and China met in Moscow, and two days ahead of the scheduled meeting between the foreign ministers, the People’s Liberation Army late Monday night accused Indian troops of “illegally crossing the Line of Actual Control at the shore of the God Pao Mountain area”.
“These are serious military provocations.. of a very bad nature,” PLA’s Western Theater Command spokesperson Col Zhang Shuili said.
There was no Indian response to the PLA statement till the time of going to press.
“During the operation, the Indian army blatantly fired threats to the patrol personnel of the Chinese border guards who had made representations, and the Chinese border guards were forced to take countermeasures to stabilise the situation,” the spokesman alleged.
