Aug.16: Sources in the Ministry of Defence (MoD) on Wednesday described as false information relating to a reported confrontation between Indian and Chinese troops in the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Six to seven army vehicles of PLA troops arrived in at Pangong lake in Ladakh.

A day after Indian and Chinese troops clashed along the northern bank of Pangong Lake in Ladakh, a flag meeting was requested by the Chinese side, sources said on Wednesday.

The relationship between the two is already tense with both refusing to backtrack from their respective positions at Doklam plateau.

Chinese troops first tried to infiltrate into the Indian territory through the Finger Four area, a region that has been a bone of contention between India and China as both claim it to be a part of their territory. "And we urge the India side to abide by the Line of Actual Control", she said. The two sides have frequently accused each other of territorial intrusions, but clashes are rare.

The army was apparently countering reports of a fresh clash breaking out with Chinese troops in the Doklam Plateau, where a almost two-month-long stand-off over a trilateral border terroritorial ownership is still on.

The incident comes at a time when both nations have been facing a continued stand-off at the India-Bhutan-China tri-junction in Doka La (Doklam).

She added that Chinese border troops were always "committed to maintain peace and tranquillity" along the Sino-India border.

Asked whether there was any progress to resolve the standoff at the Doklam area in the Sikkim section which has now entered the third month, Hua reiterated China's stand that Indian troops illegally trespassed into Chinese territory and they should unconditionally withdraw.
