India rejects the declare made by the Chinese language professor of “microwave weapons” – Malaysia Solar.
Washington [US]Nov 18 (ANI): India on Tuesday rejected claims by a Chinese professor that China had used microwave weapons to defeat Indian forces in an alleged border battle in the disputed Ladakh region.
According to Indian officials, China is issuing “false news” about the use of microwave weapons, referring to a claim by a Beijing-based professor that Chinese forces are “turning the mountain tops into a microwave oven during a clash with India that allowed Beijing “We have recaptured two important hills in the disputed border region, the Washington Examiner reported.
“They are pure and poor psyops from China,” said an Indian official.
The Indian military issued a denial on Tuesday, finding that they still have control of the hill.
“The allegations made in these media reports are false,” said a graphic tweeted by the Indian army. “There was no such incident in Ladakh.” According to the Washington Examiner, the Beijing-based professor claimed the Chinese armed forces used the weapons to fight while adhering to a decade-old agreement that the two nuclear-armed neighbors would not use firearms in the border dispute.
“In 15 minutes everyone who occupied the hills started vomiting … They couldn’t get up and fled. That’s how we reclaimed the ground,” said Jin Canrong, professor of international relations at Renmin University’s British newspaper.
The professor claimed the attack took place on August 29, but the Indian official said it never happened.
“If they have brought us from the heights, why is China still asking India to withdraw from these heights?” The source replied. “Our soldiers and tanks / equipment are still there and we did not come from the heights.” In early September, Indian officials confirmed that the Chinese armed forces had taken a “provocative” move on August 29, but Chinese officials appeared to be doing so to acknowledge that India had retained control of the area, the Washington Examiner reported.
“We urge India to strictly discipline its border troops, stop all provocations at once and immediately withdraw all employees who have been illegally crossed [the unofficial boundary of the disputed area]and stop taking action that could escalate tensions or complicate matters, “Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in early September.
It is not clear why the Chinese professor would make such a claim.
“It could either be just bravery or the platform the Psyops are launched on,” said the Indian official.
Chinese and Indian troops have been in a stalemate along the Line of Effective Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh since early May.
The situation along the LAC worsened in June after the clash in the Galwan Valley, in which both sides suffered casualties.
Twenty Indian soldiers were killed in the violent clash on June 15-16. This came about as a result of an attempt by Chinese troops to unilaterally change the status quo during the de-escalation in eastern Ladakh. (ANI)
