India, China both deploy in 'large numbers' along border

As Chair of the House Foreign Subcommittee on Asia, Bera said that he is "concerned by continued Chinese aggression along its border" with India.

The line of actual control in this high altitude region was established following the 1962 war between China and India that saw thousands of men on both sides killed in the sparsely populated region.

While each has said it wants to de-escalate the territorial showdown, India's foreign ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava said "both sides remain deployed in large numbers in the region, while military and diplomatic contacts are continuing".

As this area is strategically important for India, Indian troops carrying weapons and bulldozers confronted the Chinese troops. Though China has not confirmed the casualties on its side, it's estimated that around 35-45 Chinese died in the clash.

Before the clashes, India and China had been asserting that pending the final resolution of the boundary issue, it was necessary to maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas.

He further said that the actions of the Chinese side were not in accordance with the pacts signed since 1993 and in view of the Chinese actions, Indian side also had to undertake counter deployments.

"At the heart of the matter is that since early May, the Chinese side has been amassing a large contingent of troops and armaments along the LAC".

Sources said that India is also very shortly getting a highly capable air defence system from a friendly country which can be deployed and the entire area can be taken care off to prevent any enemy flying there.

During a virtual press conference the former law minister said, " the Prime Minister should address the nation and promise that anyone capturing Indian territory would be pushed back.

"In truth beginning with the time frame of April and Might, I would say there were being a range of Chinese steps together the LAC in the Ladakh sector in the western sector that interfered with and hindered with the regular patrolling pursuits of our troops in that sector".

Now a Colorado-based satellite imagery company has revealed very recent building work from both sides in the fractious Galwan River Valley.

China on Wednesday again accused India of provoking the border clash, but urged New Delhi to "meet China halfway" in restoring peace and stability along their disputed frontier.

He said, Chinese and Indian border troops held the second round of talks at the level of corps commanders in the border area on June 22.

Whether the tensions will be eased after this round of corps commander meeting, and whether the issue of military confrontation in Galwan Valley will be resolved, depends on the follow-up decisions of the Indian government and the follow-up actions of the Indian military.

India, on the other hand, wishes to keep to the McMahon line that was drawn by the British Empire to show the area of control of India in the jagged and maze-like Karakoram mountains.
