New Delhi: Troops of India and China had now come face to face in Arunachal Pradesh after a prolonged standoff along the LAC in Leh, but the dispute was resolved after a few hours. According to information received from defense sources, last week the soldiers of both the countries came in a face-off situation on the Line of Actual Control. PLA soldiers were detained by Indian troops in the Tawang sector near Yangtze. But it was resolved after talks between the local commanders of both sides as per established protocol. Sources said that no one was hurt during the dispute. According to defense sources, the India-China border has not been formally demarcated and hence there are differences in the perception of the LAC between the countries. Peace has been established on the LAC only through following the existing agreements and protocols between the two countries. Soldiers on both sides patrol the LAC according to their perception. During patrolling, the armies of both the countries face to face and sometimes there is a dispute over the LAC. There is no loss to either party in this dispute.

Let us tell you that the soldiers of India and China also came face to face on the LAC in Leh last year. In June 2000, the armies of the two countries clashed. In this encounter 20 soldiers of the Indian Army were martyred, while China also suffered a lot. It is believed that more than 40 Chinese soldiers were killed in this conflict. After this, there was tension between the two countries for a long time. After talks at various levels, it was gradually successful in reducing the tension.
