Biznextindia : The US on Tuesday reacted to the recent face-off between Indian and Chinese troops at Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh and called it a growing trend by the PRC to assert itself and to be provocative in areas directed towards U.S. allies.

US department of Defence Press secretary Brigadior General Patrick Ryder during a press briefing said the US will continue to remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring the security of our partners.  And we fully support India’s ongoing efforts to deescalate this situation.

“DoD continues to closely watch developments along the line of actual control at the India-China border.  We have seen the PRC continue to amass forces and build military infrastructure along the so-called LAC.  But I would defer you to India in terms of their views.  It does reflect though, and it’s important to point out, the growing trend by the PRC to assert itself and to be provocative in areas directed towards U.S. allies and our partners in the Indo Pacific.  And we will continue to remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring the security of our partners.  And we fully support India’s ongoing efforts to deescalate this situation” he said.

“On China and India, we’re closely monitoring the situation. We are glad to hear that both sides appear to have quickly disengaged from the clashes. I don’t have anything to offer in terms of the timing behind the most recent clashes, but we’re continuing to monitor very closely and to engage with our Indian partners,” Ned Price, spokesman for the United States Department of State, said.
