The political celebration on Twitter between Congressman Rahul Gandhi and Foreign Minister S Jaishankar over the deaths of 20 soldiers in a violent dispute with the Chinese in Ladakh meant that Indian troops were armed but did not open fire. The minister stated that “all troops in the border service always carry weapons, especially when they leave the post. They did so on June 15 in Galwan. A long-standing practice (according to the 1996-2005) no-use firearms during faceoffs.” Read in Tamil After the 1993 agreement (on maintaining peace and calm along the effective line of control (LAC) in the border regions between India and China), “pending a definitive solution), “both sides must scrupulously respect and respect the LAC between the two sides… No activity by both parties shall exceed the LAC. The continued inability of India and China to make significant progress on the border issue is centred on four agreements signed between the two countries in September 1993, November 1996, April 2005 and October 2013. Ironically, India and China continue to see these agreements as the basis for the vision of progress on the issue of borders. Unfortunately, these are profoundly erroneous agreements that, at best, make the search for a solution to the border issue a strategic illusion and, at worst, a cynical diplomatic sleight of hand. That`s how. Let us now consider paragraph 4 of the 2013 agreement (on cooperation in the field of border defence).
It calls on the parties to “cooperate with the other party in the fight against natural disasters or infectious diseases (evidence mines) that may have an impact on the other party or spread to the other side.” Faced with this serious intention, how do we read the latest cycle of Fisticuffs and intense physical scrimmages between Chinese and Indian soldiers who wounded at least 70 Indian soldiers and hospitalized them in Saladian? He could have exposed some of the Indian soldiers to a local Chinese COVID-19 mutation. Do you forget physical renunciation, were they wearing masks? The founding agreement came into force on 17 May 2019, after members, including the Federal Republic of Germany and the European Union, tabled the ratification instruments, creating the Foundation as an international organization. The Foundation`s founding agreement is the first international agreement negotiated by the 62 members of the strategic partnership between the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean, which is a bi-regional milestone with its entry into force. The desire for peace has led both sides to conclude agreements from time to time. In 1993, it required both parties to notify each other if their perceived CETs were exceeded. The other party was then forced to withdraw. This created a mans-free buffer zone. Although it was established in 1993 that any dispute between the two parties would consider this issue jointly and decide on harmonization. But it never happened. This crisis was resolved by a meeting between local military commanders with the Indian side, who agreed to dismantle the structures of Chumar, and the People`s Liberation Army withdrew. This led to the more complex 2013 agreement, which in turn aimed to prevent conflict and resolve conflicts, but did not decide on a mutually agreed LAC. None of these articles directly refers to the situation that arose on Monday, when Chinese soldiers were brutally attacked to death in the Galwan Valley.
As Jaishankar explained, after many years of practice in the region that results from these agreements, the soldiers did not open fire.
