Watch: China reacts after India slams border provocation at LAC in Ladakh
The Chinese government again tried to shift blame to India for the recent border provocation in Ladakh. On September 7, Chinese troops tried to close in on a forward position of the Indian Army. They even fired shots to try and intimidate the Indian side. However, a day after the incident at the southern bank of the Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh, Beijing tried to paint a wildly different and false picture. China claimed that it was the Indian side which crossed the Line of Actual Control and fired shots. Beijing has been trying to play such a game for months, ever since its first aggressive action along the LAC. Significantly, the latest provocation comes days after a meeting between India and China’s defence ministers in Moscow. Moreover, the two nations’ foreign ministers are also scheduled to meet soon.
