New Delhi, Sep 12: Indian soldiers and People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China, on Wednesday, were engaged in a confrontation near the border in Ladakh.
The say long standoff day between Indian Army and Chinese PLA has been resolved through delegation-level talks, Army sources said.
The faceoff between the soldiers of the two armies occurred near the northern bank of the Pangong lake, reported the news agency ANI.
A scuffle broke out between the troops on Wednesday morning when soldiers of the Indian Army, who were patrolling the northern bank of the 134-Km long Pangong Tso, were confronted by PLA troops who objected to their presence in the area. China controls nearly two-thirds of the Pangong Tso lake which extends from Tibet to Ladakh.
“This occurs due to differing perceptions of LAC (Line of Actual Control). There are established mechanisms to resolve such occurrences,” an Army source said.
