China has deployed close to 50,000 troops and a range of missiles across the Line of Actual Control (LAC), Economic Times reports.

Along with the aforementioned soldiers, the Chinese government has also stationed almost 150 fighter aircraft and a massive number of rocket forces near the LAC.

However, the Indian government believes that this development will not result in any tactical action from the northern neighbours. They are geared up if the situation turns volatile, but ward off concerns that the doorway for a proper conflict has been surpassed.

The Narendra Modi-led dispensation has also made its intentions clear that any attempt to breakthrough India’s forward posts will encounter a professional response from the military forces.

News reports have said that the Indian Army has been matching the Chinese in troop deployments.

It is also reported that Chinese forces have been asked to test and engage on heights and positions under Indian control in the southern bank of Pangong Tso on a daily basis.

The tensions at the border are expected to be discussed in detail as External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar meets his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi for a bilateral meeting in Moscow on Thursday.
