China's actions violate bilateral agreements on ensuring peace along LAC: India

New Delhi/IBNS: India on Friday blamed China over its standoff with the neighbouring country in eastern Ladakh for the past 6 months and accused Beijing of bringing unilateral changes in the status along the Line of Actual Control (LAC)

"The situation that we have seen since the last 6 months has been a result of the actions of the Chinese side which has sought to effect a unilateral change in status along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern  Ladakh. These actions are in violation of the bilateral agreements and protocol on ensuring peace and tranquility along the LAC in the India-China border areas," Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said during a media briefing.

"The core issues, as I mentioned last week remains that both sides need to strictly follow the various bilateral agreements and protocols in their entirety, including the 1993 and 1996 agreement on maintenance of peace and tranquility along the LAC in the border areas, which require that there should not be amassing of troops, each side should strictly abide by and respect the LAC and should not take any unilateral action to alter it," he said.

Srivastava said Delhi has taken note of the Chinese side’s statement that it observes ‘strictly the agreements between the two sides and is committed to resolving the border issue through dialogue and safeguarding peace and tranquility’ in the border areas.'

"We expect that the Chinese side will match its words with actions," Srivastava added.

The two sides have continued to maintain communication through diplomatic and military channels.

"It is our expectation that the further discussions will help both sides to achieve an agreement on a mutually acceptable solution for ensuring complete disengagement in all
friction points along the LAC in the Western sector and full restoration of peace and tranquility as early as possible," said Srivastava.
