India has a detailed proposal to reduce stress
According to sources, India will present a special proposal to China to reduce tensions between the two forces in Pangong Tso, Galwan Valley and Demchok. For the last one month, a confrontation between the armies of the two countries is taking place in these areas. It is believed that India will offer to maintain the position which has been in this area before China.

Till now, the two countries have held talks about the recent tension. This conversation has taken place between the local commander level and even the officers of the rank of Major General. However, so far these discussions have not yielded any positive results.

There were three clashes between the two armies in May.

There have been three clashes between Indian and Chinese soldiers last month. On these incidents, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs had said that Indian soldiers carry out activities within their border. Activities beyond the Indian Army’s Line of Actual Control (LAC) are not correct. In fact, these are the actions of China, due to which our regular patrolling is hindered.

Where, when and how did clashes happen this month?

1) Date – 5th May, Place- Pangong Lake in Eastern Ladakh

Around 200 soldiers of India and China came face to face in the Finger-5 area on the northern side of this lake in the evening. India objected to the presence of Chinese soldiers. Conflict conditions persisted throughout the night. The next day, there was a skirmish between the soldiers on both sides. Later, the matter was resolved after talks between top officials on both sides.

2) Date – possibly May 9, place – Naku La Sector in North Sikkim at an altitude of 16000 feet

Here, 150 soldiers of India and China were face to face. Its date has not been officially revealed. However, according to a report by The Hindu, the clash occurred here only on 9 May. During the patrol, the soldiers during the Face-off attacked each other with punches. 10 soldiers were injured in this clash. Officers later intervened here too. Then the clash stopped.

3) Date – probably May 9, place – Ladakh

The day China-India troops were at loggerheads in North Sikkim, China sent its helicopters to the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. Chinese helicopters did not cross the border, but in response, India sent a fleet of its Sukhoi 30 MKI fighter plane from Leh airbase and the rest of the fighter aircraft. According to media reports, this was the first time in recent years that in response to such action by China, India sent its fighter aircraft to the border.
