Despite truce talks, China continues military build up along border

New Delhi: Even as India and China are holding talks to defuse the border tension triggered by the violent clash at Galwan Valley on 15 June, the latter continues military build up along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh sector, reports said.

The Chinese Army, which started its build up on 4 May, has deployed more than 10,000 troops along with heavy artillery, armoured regiments and defence barriers, according to reports.

ANI said that though the Indian side claims areas up to Finger 8, the Chinese Army has been blocking Indian troops from going beyond Finger 4.

It quoted a source as saying that in the Finger area along the Pangong Tso lake, the Chinese have continued to indulge in heightened military activities like deployment of troops and constructions.
