Beijing- The Chinese military has urged India to immediately retract its border after trespassing into Chinese territory on Monday at the southern bank of Pangong Tso Lake in Southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region, Senior Colonel Zhang Shuili, spokesman for the People’s Liberation Army Western Theater Command, said in a statement made on Monday night.
According to Zhang, the Indian military has violated the previous consensus reached by the two militaries by trespassing into Chinese territory again, and stirring tension in the region with blatant provocation.
“The action by India has severely violated China’s territorial sovereignty, and severely damaged peace and stability at the China-India border,” he said. “China strongly opposes this faithless act of repudiating past promises.”
Zhang further stated that the PLA solemnly demands India to immediately retract its border forces, strictly manage and control its frontline servicemen and fulfills its promises to avoid further escalation.
“The Chinese military is taking necessary actions in response, and will closely monitor the situation to safeguard China’s territorial sovereignty, as well as peace and stability in the border region,” he added.
