China has been irritated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Ladakh. Reacting to the PM’s visit, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said that neither side should do anything that would make the atmosphereetween the two countries worse.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said in his briefing that talks are continuing through military and diplomatic channels to reduce tensions at the border between India and China. At this time, neither side should do anything that will increase further tension between the two countries.
Amid a border dispute with China in Ladakh, PM Modi arrived on a sudden visit to Leh along with CDS General Bipin Rawat on Friday morning. During this time he met the wounded soldiers in Galvan and encouraged them. Apart from this, PM Modi also took stock of Army preparations along the Line of Actual Control. In Nimu, PM Modi interacted with Army, Air Force and ITBP jawans. Situated at an altitude of 11,000 feet on the banks of the Indus River, it is one of the most difficult areas.
Let us tell that 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a skirmish with China in the Galvan Valley on 15-16 June in Ladakh. Since then the situation on the India-China border has remained tense. Chinese troops attempted to change the situation unilaterally during de-escalation. The two countries are in a round of negotiations to ease the border tension that has been going on since last month. However, both countries have increased deployment of troops on LAC.
