On September 7, both India and China had issued statements on the incident in the Chushul sub-sector. It is said this was the first time in 45 years that shots were fired along the LAC.

The firing took place before the external affairs ministers of both the countries met in Moscow on September 10. Both S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi agreed to deescalate tension along the border in Ladakh.

After the meet, both India and China released a joint statement on a five-point plan…” continue their dialogue, quickly disengage, maintain a proper distance, ease tensions and work towards new confidence-building measures.”

Even last week China fired shots in the air as they attempted to approach Indian positions on the South Bank of Ladakh’sPangong Lake.

All these started ever since Chinese soldiers started a medieval-style fight with the Indian soldiers, leaving 20 of them martyred. Both sides have been passing the buck for the firing incident along the LAC.

As per sources, despite China’s continued attempts to alter the status quo along the borders, the Indian army continues to hold ground.

Indian army recently gained a tactical advantage by occupying heights in the region, curbing Chinese attempts to unilaterally alter the LAC.
