INDIA AND CHINA ACCUSE EACH OTHER OF FIRING SHOTS AT TENSE BORDER

Beijing accuses New Delhi of ‘severe military provocation,’ but India denies its soldiers crossed the disputed border.

The relationship between the two countries has deteriorated since a hand-to-hand combat clash in the Ladakh region on June 15, in which 20 Indian troops were killed.

Experts fear the latest incident will intensify a months-long standoff between the Asian giants that erupted in late April.

Beijing’s defense ministry accused India of “severe military provocation,” saying soldiers crossed the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the western border region on Monday and “opened fire to threaten the Chinese border defense patrol officers.”

New Delhi was swift to give its own account, accusing Chinese border forces of “blatantly violating agreements” and firing “a few rounds in the air” to intimidate their Indian rivals.
