India doubles down on opposition to China’s second bridge across Pangong Lake

Both bridges are located across the narrowest section of the 134-km-long lake. They will cut the distance between Chinese troop positions on the north bank to a key People’s Liberation Army (PLA) base at Rutog, on the eastern end of the lake, by around 150 km.

Satellite imagery of the site indicates that the first bridge built by China across Pangong Lake is narrower and has been completed. Both the bridges are in areas that have continued to be under the illegal occupation of China since the 1960s. (Image used for representation). (HT FILE PHOTO.)
