EFSAS comments on the India-China border clashes and its ramifications


The LAC predominantly passes over land, but at Pangong Tso it passes through water. Pangong Tso is a long and narrow lake located at a height of over 4,000 meters in the Himalayas. The 135 km-long lake sprawls over 604 sq km in the shape of a boomerang and is 6 km wide at its broadest point. The points in the water at which the Indian claim ends and the Chinese claim begins have not been mutually agreed upon. At present, the 45 km-long western portion of the lake is under Indian control, while the rest is under Chinese control. Most of the clashes between the two armies occur in the disputed portion of the lake.
