BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijiang announced Friday that there are currently no Indian soldiers in custody in the country.

Lijiang told a news conference, “According to my information, at the present, the Chinese side has no [military] representatives from the Indian side.”

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman did not specify if there were any prisoners before.

An Indian publication quoted a security source earlier that claimed China released ten Indian soldiers who were captured during the border clashes three days ago.

Earlier this week, the Indian and Chinese forces clashed along the disputed border in the Ladakh region.

According to the Chinese army, the Indian army violated its obligations, crossed the de facto line and illegally and intentionally carried out a provocative strike, which resulted in a violent clash, in which people were killed and injured.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry protested and lodged a petition with India regarding the new incident at the border. The Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the engagement came as a result of an attempt by the Chinese side to change what was agreed upon, unilaterally, regarding compliance with the actual control line in Wadig Alfan.
