1,000 Chinese troops enter India while Modi, Xi talk business

    Even as visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi discuss ways to strengthen Sino-Indian economic and cultural relations between the two asian giants, border tensions heightened as Chinese and Indian troops were involved in a face-off along their border in the Ladakh region.

Quoting army sources, IANS reported that around nearly 1,000 Chinese soldiers moved inside the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Ladakh region, and refused to go back.

Nearly 1,000 Chinese troops crossed about five km into Indian territory Wednesday in Ladakh's Chumar sector, even as the troops of both sides held a flag meeting at the brigadier-level in Chushul.

In retaliation, the Indian Army has rushed three battalions to the LAC in the sector.

Indian officials said Chinese soldiers had entered Indian territory and appeared to be building a road in the region.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said Narendra Modi raised the issue with Xi Jinping during their meeting in Ahmedabad Wednesday.

"When leaders of important countries like India and China meet at summit level, these are occasions for discussing substance. So, I can assure you that process has already started. Yesterday, the issues of substance that you are referring to have already been raised at the highest level.

"Today, there are several opportunities for discussion and all issues of a substantive nature, including the recent events that you are referring to, will be addressed. I can assure you that we will tell you the outcome once those discussions are done," Akbaruddin said, to a question on the incursion.

He said that "India and China have a very broad-based relationship".

The Chinese president began a three-day visit to India Wednesday with a six-hour visit to Ahmedabad where Modi took Xi around the Sabarmati Ashram and later they strolled down the Sabarmati riverfront.
