Troops from China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) clashed with Indian soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh's Tawang Sector on 9 December, leading to personnel of both sides sustaining minor injuries.

In a statment, the Indian Ministry of Defence stated,

"Both sides immediately disengaged from the area. As a follow up of the incident, own Commander in the area held a Flag Meeting with his counterpart to discuss the issue in accordance with structured mechanisms to restore peace and tranquillity."

In certain areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Tawang Sector, there are areas of differing perception, wherein both sides patrol the area upto their claim lines. This has been the trend since 2006.


In September 2022, India and China had completed the disengagement process in the Gogra-Hot Springs area in eastern Ladakh, where the two sides have been in a stand-off for the past two years.

Following disengagements in the Galwan Valley in 2020 and Pangong Tso in 2021, this was another step towards restoring the status quo as of April-May 2020.

The Eastern Ladakh border row that escalated after the Galwan Valley clashes in on 15 June 2020 had killed twenty Indian army personnel.
