Wang, however, declined to provide details of the December 9 clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers at the Yangtse area of Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang sector.

There were no fatalities or serious injuries to Indian troops in the scuffle, he added. Asked about the incident during the media interaction, Wang said: “As far as we know, the current border situation between China and India is generally stable.”

“As for the specific questions you mentioned, I suggest you refer to the competent authorities,” Wang added. The Chinese Defence Ministry has not reacted to the incident so far. Wang also said Beijing hopes that the “Indian side will work with us in the same direction and smoothly deliver the important common understanding reached by leaders of both sides.

“And act strictly on the spirit of relevant bilateral agreements signed by both sides and jointly preserve peace and tranquility in the border areas?.

It is the first major clash between the Indian and Chinese armies since the fierce face-off in the Galwan Valley in June 2020 that marked the most serious military conflict between the two sides in decades.
