BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – On Saturday, India and China exchanged accusations about border violations in the Ladakh region.

According to Reuters, India has accused China of establishing a construction site “on the other side directly from the Line of Actual Control,” a name known for the demarcation of the border between the two countries.

The report said China rejected India’s request to halt the construction project, which further antagonized New Delhi.

The agency quoted the Indian government statement as saying that “the country will not allow any unilateral changes to the disputed borders.”

In the same context, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman accused the Indian forces of doing what he called “deliberate provocation” in the Himalayan border region.

In a series of comments on Twitter, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that the Galwan Valley is located on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control and that since April the Indians have built roads, bridges and other facilities unilaterally in the region.

He added that the Indian forces crossed the actual observation line and attacked Chinese officers and soldiers who were there to negotiate, which caused “fierce confrontations.”

India reported on June 15th that 20 of their soldiers were killed during their border clash with the Chinese military.

The Chinese government has not commented on their losses.
