India and China on Wednesday remain locked in a tense face-off as the Indian Army thwarted the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) attempt to change the status quo on the southern bank of the Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh.
The incident at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is the first major incident in the area after the Galwan Valley clashes on June 15 in which 20 Indian Army personnel were killed. China also suffered casualties but is yet to make the details public. According to an American intelligence report, it was 35. India and China have held several rounds of military and diplomatic talks in the last two-and-half months but no significant headway has been made for a resolution to the border row in eastern Ladakh.
