KONTAN.CO.ID – NEW DELHI. Indian and Chinese border forces opened fire last week, just days before a meeting between the two foreign ministers.

India and China have an old agreement for border forces not to use firearms on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and for 45 years no fire.

However, since the end of last month, there have been three incidents of warning shots fired in the Western Himalayas, often at close range, Indian officials with knowledge of the situation told Reuters.

“In all cases, the shots were fired into the air and not at each other, fortunately,” said one Indian official.

One of them took place on the northern bank of Pangong Tso Lake ahead of a meeting between Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Moscow, last Thursday (10/9).

100 to 200 bullets fired

Unpublished shootings by both sides were the most intense, said another Indian official.
