    BEIJING: China on Wednesday said that it was not aware of the reports of PLA soldiers entering Indian territory along the banks of the Pangong lake in Ladakh and said it is committed to peace and tranquility along the border.

    Indian border guards yesterday foiled an attempt by Chinese soldiers+ to enter Indian territory in Ladakh, resulting in stone pelting that caused minor injuries to people on both sides.

    Asked to comment on the incident, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said, "I am not aware of the information."

    She said the People's Liberation Army (PLA) troops always patrol along the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).


    "The Chinese side is committed to peace and tranquillity of the China-India border," she said.
    "We urge the Indian side abide by the LAC and relevant conventions between the two sides," she said

    The skirmish in Ladakh comes at a time when India and China are locked in a face-off in the Doklamarea of the Sikkim sector. The standoff has been ongoing for more than 50 days, after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from constructing a road in the area.


    India has protested the construction of a road by the Chinese military in the area claimed by its ally Bhutan, fearing it would allow Beijing to cut off India's access to its northeastern states.

    Confirms what many have been thinking.....that Chinese Neocons (military) is not under the control of the CPC no matter how much they try to project so.

    It could also be that Indian Army is incorrect?

    How about the "surgical strike" on Pakistan? Sounds familiar?

    Maybe they are just lying. They are not particularly known for their honesty.

    Most likely the indian army accidentally crossed the LAC with stones and iron rods and accused the chinese unnecessarily when they started retaliating
