Indian and Chinese troops were reportedly involved in a heated exchange in eastern Ladakh near the Pangong Tso Lake on Wednesday, according to official sources. The reported exchange triggered after Chinese Army personnel objected to patrol by Indian soldiers in the area.
Army sources said the incident occurred due to deferring perceptions about the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China.
Sources quoting TOI said the face-off began on the northern bank of the 134.
The border escalation between China and India surfaced at a time when the tensions are already heightened between Islamabad and New Dehli over the abrogation of the special status of occupied Kashmir.
On Wednesday, Pakistan´s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi warned that the situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir risks sparking an “accidental war” between the two neighbouring countries.
Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Qureshi said he believed both Pakistan and India “understand the consequences of a conflict.”
