Beijing reacts to reports of India-China LAC clash in Arunachal’s Tawang; ‘Situation stable’

China’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday commented on reports of a clash between Indian and Chinese PLA troops along the LAC in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang and said the situation along the border between the two countries is “stable”.

China’s Foreign Ministry said, ‘According to our information, the situation at the China-India border is stable.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said, “As far as we understand, the situation at the China-India border is overall stable.”

Beijing urged New Delhi to “sincerely implement the important consensus reached by the two leaders, strictly abide by the spirit of the agreements and agreements signed by the two sides, and jointly maintain peace and tranquility of the China-India border area”. “

The Indian Army on Monday said Indian and Chinese troops clashed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang sector on December 9 and “some personnel from both sides suffered minor injuries” in the face-off.

The skirmish took place along the Yangtse along the LAC in the sensitive area last Friday amid the over 30-month-long border standoff between the two sides in eastern Ladakh.
