In response to China, who on Monday claimed that Indian troops "fired warning shots" at the south bank of the Pangong Tso Lake in Ladakh, the military stated that it had been the People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers who fired rounds into the air. The statement read: "India, while is committed to disengagement and de-escalating things on the LAC, China continues to undertake provocative activities to escalate. At no stage has the Indian Army transgressed across the LAC or resorted to use of any aggressive means, including firing. it's the PLA that has been blatantly violating agreements and completing aggressive manoeuvres, while engagement at military, diplomatic and political level is ongoing ."

China had claimed that Indian Army illegally crossed the road of Actual Control (LAC) and entered the south bank of Pangong Lake and the Shenpao mountain area, firing warning shots. "The Chinese border guards were forced to require countermeasures to stabilise things . Indian Army illegally crossed the road of Actual Control (LAC) and entered the south bank of Pangong Lake and therefore the Shenpao mountain area.
