While the news of 18 Indian jawans being killed by Pakistani terrorists in Uri has been grabbing headlines, the news of China trespassing into Indian territories has been missed by many. The Chinese army recently made an intrusion into the Anjaw area of Arunachal Pradesh. Flag meetings are going on between the two countries to resolve the issue.
According to a recent report, the Chinese Army entered the Indian territory on September 9 and had set up a camp at an area some 45 km inside the territory. However, after four days on September 13, a joint patrol of Army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) forced them to go back. LAC is 94 km away from Chaglagam, which is the last circle of Anjaw district.
The sources further revealed that on September 5, the Indian Army had Long Range Patrolling (LRP) which lasted up to Theneya (about 52 km from Chaglagam) where the Indian Army had a confrontation with Chinese Army between Theneya and Plum-Plum point on September 9.
To resolve the matter of intrusion and tension inside the Indian territory, a Flag meeting was held on September 14 at Damai in China (just 3 km away from the LAC) between the PLA and the Indian Army. The high-level intelligence sources further added that another meeting has been scheduled to be held on October 1 to resolve the issue.
