- Third attempted transgression by the Chinese military, this time in the Tawang sector in the eastern section of the India-China boundary, has served a reminder of the precarious state of affairs along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
- A crisis which began in April 2020, with PLA transgressions in Ladakh, in the western sector of the boundary, has now appeared to have widened to Arunachal Pradesh.Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said in Parliament that the Indian Army had forced the PLA to return to its posts.
- The Minister’s comments, on December 13, came four days after the incident,details of which were first reported by The Hindu on December 12.
- An Army statement confirmed the clash. The Opposition, which has criticized the Narendra Modi government’s continuing reticence on the China border issue, staged a walkout after being denied a discussion.
- As troubles now fare in Arunachal, the situation in Ladakh still remains unresolved.
- India is yet to resume patrolling in any of the five disengagement areas where temporary buffer zones have been established, while the Chinese military remains on India’s side of the LAC in two other friction points, in Depsang and Demchok.

- Reticence- not wanted to tell people about something
