India Stopped 200 Chinese Soldiers near Arunachal Border | India China Conflict

The Indian and Chinese troops engaged in yet another face-off last week in which around 200 PLA soldiers were intercepted close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh.
The face-off between the Indian and Chinese troops happened last week during a routine patrol close to the border with China. Sources have said the Indian troops intercepted around 200 Chinese soldiers close to the border.
Later, the troops of both sides disengaged after the local commanders resolved the issue. Sources have said the engagement between the two sides lasted for a few hours and was resolved as per the existing protocols. There was no damage caused to the Indian defenses during the engagement.

India China Conflict

As per sources, the face-off lasted for a few hours before the troops disengaged and Indian troops outnumbered the Chinese at the location. There was no damage to the Indian defenses in the face-off that took place between the two sides at the location, they said.
Since the India-China border has not been formally demarcated and hence there is a difference in perception of LAC between the countries.
"Peace and tranquillity in these areas of differing perceptions have been possible by adherence to existing agreements and protocols between the two countries," they said.

Sources said both sides undertake patrolling activities up to their line of perception.

Whenever patrols of both sides physically meet, the situation is managed according to established protocols and mechanisms agreed by both sides. Physical engagement can last for a few hours prior to disengaging as per mutual understanding, they said.

Earlier in August, India, and China had disengaged troops from the Gogra heights area and moved them back to their permanent bases.

China shares border

China shares a border with 14 countries and has resolved its border disputes with all but India. (China has settled its border disputes with a majority of its neighbors in Asia and claims to have settled its dispute with Bhutan.) India is to be blamed for its poor diplomatic record with China, especially by its refusal to participate in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
