4 Chinese soldiers died in bloody India border clash last year, China reveals
The PLA Daily did not disclose the ranks of the soldiers.
China and India have held each other responsible for the clash.
India and China share a 2,100-mile-long (3,379 km) border in the Himalayas, Which is poorly defined and hotly disputed in places. Both sides claim territory on either side of it.
The collision occurred in June 2020 near Pangong Tso, a strategically important lake located about 14,000 feet (4,267 m) above sea level, an area stretching from the Indian territory of Ladakh to Chinese-controlled Tibet, over much of India. Is in the greater Kashmir region. China and Pakistan all claim territory.
In 1962, India and China went to war on this inaccessible, inaccessible tract of land, eventually establishing the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de facto border set by Pangong Tso. However, the two countries do not agree on the exact location of the LAC and both regularly seek to accuse each other, or expand their territory. Since then, he has had a history of mostly non-lethal handcuffs on border conditions.
In September, the two countries agreed to ban sending more troops to the border, following escalation of tensions between New Delhi and Beijing. The situation was temporarily resolved by engaging in several rounds of talks with both sides.
According to the Indian Army, another “minor” confrontation between the two sides occurred in January, though it was said to have been “resolved according to protocol established by local commanders.”
On 10 February, China’s Ministry of Defense said that the two countries began disintegrating along the south and north coasts of Pangong Tso after reaching an agreement with India.
Satellite photographs taken on January 30 by US-based Maxar Technologies show several Chinese deployments with Pangong Tso. In new images taken on Tuesday, dozens of vehicles and building structures were removed, leaving the ground empty.
