China says Indian troops illegally crossed line of control and fired first

Global News published this video item, entitled “China says Indian troops illegally crossed line of control and fired first” – below is their description.

China’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday that Indian troops illegally crossed a line of control on their shared border and were first to fire threatening shots in a serious military provocation. India and China have accused each other of firing into the air during a confrontation on their border in the western Himalayas, in a further escalation of military tension between the nuclear-armed nations. China has urged India to discipline its frontline troops, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at a regular news conference in Beijing. Both sides have long observed a protocol to avoid using firearms on the sensitive, undemarcated frontier, though this agreement has not prevented casualties.
