Indian forces cross the line and fire provocation
Major Zhang Shuiyuan, spokesman for the Western Theater of the Chinese people’s Liberation Army, made a speech on the Indian army’s repeated illegal cross-border provocation. He pointed out that on September 7, the Indian army illegally crossed the line and entered the shenpao mountain area on the South Bank of Bangong Lake in the western section of the Sino Indian border. In the course of the operation, the Indian army blatantly threatened the patrol personnel of the Chinese border defense forces, and the Chinese border defense forces were forced to take measures to stabilize the local situation. India’s actions seriously violate the relevant agreements and agreements between China and India and push up regional tensions, which are easily misunderstood and misjudged. They are serious military provocations with a very bad nature. We call on the Indian side to immediately stop the dangerous operations, withdraw the personnel crossing the line immediately, strictly restrict the front-line forces, and seriously investigate and deal with those who fired provocations, so as to ensure that similar incidents will not happen again. The theater forces will resolutely perform their duties and missions and resolutely safeguard the country’s territorial sovereignty.
