According to China, Wang told Mr Jaishankar that the "imperative is to immediately stop provocations such as firing and other dangerous actions that violate the commitments made by the two sides"

Indian troops "scrupulously followed all agreements and protocols," the Foreign Ministry told Beijing at the meeting that lasted for nearly two hours, sources said adding: "The presence of such large concentration of (Chinese) troops was not in accordance with the 1993 and 1996 agreements and created flash points along the LAC. The Chinese side has not provided a credible explanation for this deployment."
