The Guardian pointed out that China claims more than 90,000 square kilometers of land on the east side of the mountain and about 38,000 square kilometers on the west side, which is now effectively occupied by India. In recent years, conflicts between the two sides have continued. India has built a large number of infrastructure such as new roads and airstrips in the local area to facilitate the mobilization of troops, which has aroused China's dissatisfaction.
The Guardian reported that since late April, China has set up camps along its Line of Actual Control, bringing in artillery and vehicles, catching Indian forces off guard. The two sides have repeatedly clashed and threw stones: senior Indian and Chinese military officers whatsapp list held a meeting on the 6th of this month and promised to make concessions. On the 15th, the Chinese People's Liberation Army was withdrawing to the east, but it turned back and met the Indian army on a narrow road.
This is the first time since 1975 that an Indian soldier was killed in a conflict between Chinese and Indian troops. "Central News Agency" pointed out that Chinese troops shot and killed four Indian soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh province. Subsequent clashes between the two sides were dominated by fighting and throwing stones. The Indian foreign ministry stated that if China abides by the agreement reached at the top of the two countries, both sides can avoid casualties. The Chinese state media Global Times published an editorial today , saying that India's "arrogance and fearlessness" is the main reason for the continued tension in the border conflict between the two countries, calling on India to strengthen control over frontline personnel. The editorial said that India has two misjudgments. One is the misunderstanding that China will not have a bad relationship with India because of the strategic pressure from the United States; the other is the misunderstanding that India's military is stronger than China.
