Showdown between Indian, Chinese armies in Tawang;Several soldiers injured I Oneindia News*Explainer

2 years after the Galwan valley clash, Indian and Chinese troops are again at conflict . The epicenter this time is Arunachal Pradesh….or more specifically Tawang..that lies on the eastern sector on the Line of Actual Control. According to reports, on December 9, over 200 Chinese soldiers carrying spiked clubs and sticks clashed with Indian soldiers in Tawang. Six Indian soldiers were injured in the face-off…and the injuries on the Chinese side could be higher. But there has been no official word from Chinese side about this scuffle yet. In the wake of this, a high-level meeting has been called by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi that will be attended by the External Affairs Minister, the NSA, the CDS….as well as the Chiefs of the 3 forces. In this video, we decode the reasons behind India and China often clashing at the LAC….More specifically, why Tawang is such a contested claim between the two nations. But before that, don’t forget to like, share and subscribe to Oneindia. #India-china clash #Tawangfaceoff#Tawangclash
