On Tuesday, flag meeting between Chinese and Indian commanders is likely in the sensitive sector of Ladakh to ease tensions between both country along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) after a border squabble last week along LaC.
Unease gripped the border near Ladakh, region always prone to disturbance by the Chinese forces, after on Friday Indian forces flattened a one-room shed build by Chinese forces inside what India considers to be its territory in the Burtse region.
Later tension was avoided as both sides stuck to rules for maintaining border peace.
A mechanism to resolve frontier issues, the flag meet, could be held either at Chushulor at Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO).
“It wasn’t a face-off but we don’t want such things to fester,” he said.
While seeking a clarification from Indian side on the incident, China too said there was no face-off between both sides.
“As far as I know there is no such faceoff in the border area,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hong Lei told reporters in Beijing.
China forces were carrying out their patrolling on their side of border. Chinese are committed to stability and border peace.
In October 2013, Beijing and New Delhi signed a new boundary pact to ensure stability and peace along the LAC, however, the cycle of border violations continues to be an old irritant in bilateral ties.
For the first time on August 15, a border personnel meeting between China and India took place at DBO.
At the 16,614-foot landing strip in the region, the Indian Air Force has landed its special-mission planes, which is the world’s highest military airfield.
