China urges India to uphold peace, tranquility after border clashes
BEIJING: China has urged India to uphold peace and tranquility in border regions with its concrete actions after clashes between soldiers of the two countries erupted on Sikkim border region.
During regular briefing in Beijing on Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Zhao Lijian said the Chinese border troops had always been upholding peace and tranquility along the border areas of the two countries.
A clash happened at China-India border last week. Several Chinese and Indian soldiers were injured after throwing stones and fighting each other at a mountain pass near Tibet. India has created tension at borders not just with Pakistan but China as well.
Indian army eastern command spokesman Mandeep Hooda said in a statement said aggressive behaviour by the two sides resulted in minor injuries to troops. It was stone-throwing and arguments that ended in a fistfight, he maintained.
He said the stand-off was resolved through dialogue and interaction.
