    No Incursion By Chinese Troops In Arunachal Pradesh: Army

    The Army mentioned that the terrain is thickly vegetated and all movements are undertaken on foot along nalas and streams

    The Indian Army on September 4th, 2019 issued an official statement denying that the Chinese Army intruded into Arunachal Pradesh.

    In the statement, the Army said, “There has been no such incursion. The area being referred to in the media report on some electronic channels is the area of Fish Tail. There is a differing perception of the alignment of the Line of Control, as in many other areas.”

    The Army mentioned that the terrain is thickly vegetated and all movements are undertaken on foot along nalas and streams. “During monsoons, whenever the nalas are in spate, temporary bridges are constructed by the patrols for their movement. Being an area of differing claims, troops routinely from either side patrol the area. In addition, civilian hunters and herb collectors also frequent here during summer months,” the Army mentioned in the press communique.

    The Army reiterated that there is no permanent presence of either Chinese soldiers or civilians in the area and surveillance is maintained by the troops.

    India and China have well established diplomatic and military mechanisms to address all issues in our border areas. The two sides agree that maintenance of peace and tranquillity in all areas of India-China border areas as a prerequisite to smooth development of overall bilateral relations, the Army said.

    “Both countries have also agreed to work towards a fair reasonable and mutually acceptable settlement of the boundary question on the basis of the 2005 Agreement on Political Parameters and Guiding Principles,” the Army further stated.
