 The foreign ministry talks about the origin and development of the conflict in the jialevan valley between China and India

Zhao Lijian: gallevan Valley is located on the Chinese side of the actual control line of the western section of the China India border. For many years, Chinas border defense forces have been on regular patrol here. Since April this year, Indias border defense forces have unilaterally built roads, bridges and other facilities in the galwan River Valley. China has repeatedly raised negotiations and protests on this issue, but India has intensified its efforts to cross the border. In the early morning of May 6, Indian border guards crossed the line into Chinese territory in the valley of kalwan by night, set up barriers for construction, blocked the normal patrol of Chinese border guards, deliberately provoked incidents, and tried to unilaterally change the current situation of border control. Chinese border forces have to take necessary measures to strengthen on-site response and border area control.

In order to ease the situation in the border areas, China and India maintain close communication through military and diplomatic channels. At the strong request of the Chinese side, the Indian side agreed to withdraw the crossing personnel and dismantle the crossing facilities. On June 6, the border forces of the two countries held a meeting at the military commander level to reach consensus on easing the situation in the border areas. The Indian side promised not to patrol and build facilities across the river mouth of gallevan, and the two sides agreed to withdraw troops in batches through local commanders meetings.

However, it is shocking that on the evening of June 15, the front-line border forces of India openly broke the consensus reached at the level of military commanders of both sides. In the case that the local situation in the gallevan Valley has slowed down, they once again deliberately provoked across the actual control line, or even violently attacked the Chinese officers and soldiers who went to the site to negotiate, which led to fierce physical conflicts and casualties. The Indian armys risk-taking actions seriously undermine the stability of the border area, seriously threaten the safety of Chinese personnel, seriously violate the agreements reached between the two countries on border issues, and seriously violate the basic norms of international relations. China has made solemn representations and strong protests to India in this regard.

On June 17, Chinese State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi, in a telephone call with Indian Foreign Minister Su Jiesheng, once again clarified Chinas solemn position to the Indian side, asking the Indian side to carry out a thorough investigation, severely punish the person responsible for the accident, strictly control the front-line forces, immediately stop all provocative actions, ensure that such incidents do not happen again, and convene a second military commander level meeting as soon as possible to solve the local situation Related matters. The two sides agreed to just deal with the serious situation caused by the conflict in the galwan Valley, abide by the consensus reached at the meeting between the two military chiefs, cool down the situation on the ground as soon as possible, and maintain peace and tranquility in the border area in accordance with the agreement reached by the two countries so far.

China hopes that India and China will walk in the opposite direction, abide by the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, strictly abide by the agreements and agreements signed by the two governments, strengthen communication and coordination on properly handling the current border situation through both sides existing military and diplomatic channels, and jointly maintain peace and tranquility in the border areas of the two countries.
