  • India accuses China of fresh 'provocative actions' at mountain border

Neither side has announced any casualties, but Namgyal Dolkar Lhagyari, a member of the Tibetan parliament in exile, told AFP news agency on Tuesday that the Tibetan-origin soldier was "martyred during the clash" on Saturday night.

The army of the two countries held Brigade Commander-level talks in Chushul with a focus on bringing down tensions in the Pangong Lake area, they said, adding that similar dialogue on Monday and Tuesday, each lasting over six hours, did not produce any "tangible outcome".

On Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying dismissed the reports, telling reporters that no member of India's armed forces died on the mountainous border with China.

There has been a flare-up of tensions between Chinese and Indian troops along the poorly delimited border in recent weeks and months.

"From Taiwan Strait to Xinjiang, South China Sea to Himalayas, cyberspace to worldwide organizations, we're dealing with Chinese Communist Party that seeks to repress its own people & bully its neighbours", it said. The two have disputed the course of the frontier for over half a century.

The two sides were earlier engaged in a confrontation on the northern bank of Pangong Lake but it was for the first time such an incident occurred on its southern bank, they said.

While additional troops have been deployed, it was also chose to bring in more weaponry like anti-tank guided missiles and tanks. China acknowledged casualties but did not give figures.

India accuses China of fresh 'provocative actions' at mountain border

In June, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in hand-to-hand combat with Chinese troops in Ladakh's Galwan area, the most serious clash between the two countries in 50 years.

India's defence ministry said its troops "undertook measures to strengthen our positions and thwart Chinese intentions to unilaterally change facts on ground".

Meanwhile, India moved to reinforce the eastern stretch of its border with China following the reported clashes, dispatching more troops to the area, Reuters reported.

Both sides agreed to pull back.

"On the night of August 29/30, PLA troops violated the previous consensus arrived at during military and diplomatic engagements during the ongoing standoff in Eastern Ladakh and carried out provocative military movements to change the status quo", Army spokesperson Colonel Aman Anand had said in a statement on Monday.

India has banned at least 49 Chinese owned-apps, including the TikTok video platform, frozen Chinese firms out of contracts and held up Chinese goods at customs posts.
