BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Tensions between China and India are at a year-long-high after a skirmish along the border nearly four weeks ago.

According to the latest reports from the region, the Indian Armed Forces have sent more reinforcements to the Line of Actual Control area, despite calls by Beijing to decrease tensions along the 4,000-kilometre-long border.

The reports said Indian military personnel were rushed to the Uttarakhan border area, where they are now separated by fence from the People’s Liberation Army in the Guldong sector.

“Deployment ahead of Harsil has been strengthened due to reports of Chinese beefing up their numbers in the opposite sector”, a senior defense official was quoted as saying by the news website Indian Express.

Furthermore, both countries have reportedly increased their reconnaissance missions in the Ladakh area, which is where the standoff between India and China first began in the last week of April.

The Indian defense official told the news publication that reinforcements have already been provided in the critical areas of the Galwan Valley, where China pitched around 100 tents with heavy vehicles and more troops as Beijing claimed that India had trespassed the border and built defense infrastructure. The Indian Foreign Ministry denied the Chinese claim.

Defense sources said that a sixth meeting between sector commanders from both the Indian and Chinese armies also remained inconclusive.
