The Chinese Foreign Ministry called on India to comply with the agreements reached on maintaining peace in the border region of southern Tibet

A new aggravation of the situation on the Indian-Chinese border in southern Tibet occurred last Friday. According to Colonel Long Shaohua, spokesman for the Western Theater Command of the PLA, the Chinese border troops were carrying out routine patrols on their side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the eastern section of the border when Indian troops illegally crossed the line and blocked the Chinese border guards. The colonel said that the PLA military professionally dealt with the situation and stabilized it.

There was a clash between the two sides at the LAC border on Friday, according to Indian media, in which soldiers from both sides are said to have sustained minor injuries.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a briefing on Tuesday that the current situation is "generally stable" and asked India to abide by the peacekeeping arrangements in the border region signed by the two sides.

We hope that India will meet China's needs, implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, strictly adhere to the spirit of the relevant agreements signed by the two sides, and jointly maintain peace and tranquility in the border region.

- quotes the words of the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the Chinese edition of Global Times.

After the conflict on the western section of the Sino-Indian border in 2020, both sides have increased their military grouping in the disputed border area. In parallel, Beijing and New Delhi are taking steps to politically stabilize this issue. The parties held a series of diplomatic rounds, signed a number of agreements, but so far it has not been possible to completely remove the tension in the LAC zone. Over the past 45 years, hand-to-hand fights between Indian and Chinese border guards have occurred repeatedly, and in 2020, 20 people even died in one of these clashes.

Ling Mingwang, a professor at the Institute of International Studies at Fudan University, believes that historical border disputes between India and China remain unresolved. At the same time, the professor emphasized, clashes on the Indian-Chinese border rarely occur in winter. The expert believes that perhaps India chose this time to start the conflict in an attempt to convey a certain message.

The new round of confrontation provoked by New Delhi may mean that the Indian leadership is sending a signal to the outside world that the confrontation between the two states will continue. This fits in with the strategy of India, which is trying to maintain good relations with the United States, which considers China its main rival in the international arena.

At the same time, Chinese experts are confident that Friday's clash will not lead to a serious escalation and military confrontation between India and China, even in the disputed border area. The parties quickly extinguished the conflict and now declare their commitment to previously reached peace agreements.

The armies have completed the disengagement of forces, the situation on the border between the two countries remains generally stable, and there are some good signs of stabilization and thaw in relations between the two countries.

Qian Feng, director of the research department at the National Strategy Institute at Tsinghua University, is sure.

    yes, yes, I’m sure that these mattress covers are being kindled in order to somehow slow down the start of the Chinese operation in Taiwan. And then all the resources are involved in Little Russia, the arsenals are empty, the economy is bursting at the seams, it's time for the cautious Chinese comrades to open a second front.

    Hindus, despite the myths about their peacefulness, are extremely conflicted (((they have too many territorial claims: to China, to Pakistan, to Nepal, to Sri Lanka, to the Maldives, to Indonesia ....... In conflict with China, Delhi actively support the United States, having its diamond interest.

    If Russia falls, China will face a bleak future. The West is arming India to the teeth to counter China. India has been a local partner of the US against China and Russia in Afghanistan. Israel currently has huge influence in Indian politics (thanks to the ruling party's over-reliance on Israel for political and Kashmir strategy) and so India will continue this partnership. The West knows which side the Indian Deep State is on. This is why India was the only country in the world that the West told not to worry about, and even encouraged to replenish its reserves with highly discounted Russian oil.

      What planet do you live on? Which West is arming India? India has been sitting tightly on Russian weapons for many years, there is even a licensed assembly of our T-90s and AKs.
      India has always been friendly to Russia. But they are in permanent conflict with Pakistan and China. India and China are waiting for the outcome of our confrontation, if we win convincingly, they will race to Russia, pushing with their elbows, asking for allies, and not just remaining partners. For Russia is the most important player for them, and everyone will try to drag us to their side. The main thing is for us to bend our line, we will defeat the Yankees in Ukraine - and our world authority will take off.

    Maybe this is not a conflict of two states, but a conflict of two border guards? And in everyone there is a soldier, ready to pour out a wind of ears on the enemy with words. Etc.
    Not all conflicts begin "for the Faith, the Tsar and the Fatherland."

    The entire British colonial era.

    All this must disappear, just as the British were expelled from Asia. (This is the usual Anglo-Saxon way of retreating and then laying mines).

    If the Indians think they are the continuation and successor of British colonization, we will do a good job of "convincing" the Indians. Be it tongue or stone.
