http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/indiaarticlelist/-2128936835.com Defence minister A K Antony on Monday said India will take every step to protect its interests at the borders. The defence minister was responding to reports of incursions by Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh. "We are taking every action to protect our interest. ... We will take every step to protect our interest," he told reporters outside Parliament. Several dozen Chinese soldiers have set up a remote camp some 10 km inside Indian territory in the high altitude Himalayan desert of Ladakh. In this deep incursion into Indian territory, Chinese troops apparently made inroads into the Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) sector of eastern Ladakh and erected a tented post there last week. Government sources have already said that India and China are in touch to resolve the issue. As per reports, a platoon-strength contingent of about 50 troops of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) came 10 km inside Indian territory in Burthe in the DBO sector, which is at an altitude of about 17,000 feet, on the night of April 15. Troops from Indo-Tibetan Border Police ( ITBP), which mans that stretch of the border, have also established a camp approximately 300 metres opposite the location, the sources said. DBO, located in northernmost Ladakh, is a historic camp site and located on an ancient trade route connecting Ladakh to Yarkand in Xinjiang, China. IAF has in recent years activated advanced landing grounds at DBO and two other places in eastern Ladakh as part of the policy to build military infrastructure along the LAC, in a belated move to counter strategic moves by China in the region.
