Amid tensions between India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh, three Indian Army personnel including an officer and two soldiers lost their lives on 16 June.

In an interview to The Quint, Chinese affairs expert and a distinguished fellow of the Observer Research Foundation, Manoj Joshi says that if the tension escalates, a small war is likely.

He further added, “If China can tamper with the LAC at Ladakh, then India too can retaliate by tampering with the LAC in other places.”

Joshi notes that despite disengagement talks having begun, the recent skirmish must have been triggered by some event.
