The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has transgressed across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh.

A defence ministry document published on August 4, 2020 stated that Chinese aggression along the contested LAC has been increasing.

A defence ministry document published on August 4, 2020 stated that Chinese aggression along the contested LAC has been increasing.According to a document uploaded by the Ministry of Defence on its website on August 4, 2020, Chinese aggression along the contested Line of Actual Control (LAC) has been increasing, and the current standoff is expected to be prolonged. The ministry stated in the document that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) transgressed into the Indian side in the areas of Kugrang Nala, Gogra and the north bank of Pangong Tso on May 17-18.

The document says a Corps Commander Level Flag Meeting was held on June 6, 2020, between the armed forces on both sides to defuse the situation. However, a violent face-off incident took place between the two parties on June 15, resulting in casualties of both sides, it said.

A second Corps Commander Level Meeting was held on June 22, 2020, to discuss the modalities of the de-escalation process. The report said the present standoff is likely to be prolonged until the engagement and dialogue at the military and diplomatic level yields a mutually acceptable consensus. The situation in Eastern Ladakh arising from unilateral aggression by China continues to be sensitive and requiring close monitoring and prompt action based on the evolving circumstances, it explains.

The document has now been deleted from the ministry's website, and the message 'URL cannot be found' pops up on clicking on the old link.
