India says troops had 'minor' border face-off with China in Sikkim

Video info
The Indian Army said on Monday that the Indian and Chinese troops were involved in a "minor face-off" last week on their shared border in Sikkim in the eastern Himalayas, underlining the tense situation at the border. The army however clarified the face-off was mutually resolved and provided no further details. Farmers on Monday began gathering at key border points of Indian capital New Delhi for the proposed 'Tractor Rally' on the eve of Republic Day. Tractors from Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan reached on Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur borders as the farmers sit in for protest for nearly two months against the centre's new farm laws. The move comes as Delhi Police formally granted permission for the rally on January 26, assigning them routes for the same. The family of slain human rights activist Karima Baloch slammed Pakistani authorities after her body was forcefully taken away by security forces while it was being escorted to her hometown in Balochistan. Karima who was a vocal critic of the Pakistan Army and government atrocities in Balochistan, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Canada in last December. Afghanistan’s National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib has said the Taliban does not want peace and that based on intelligence information, the group is making itself ready for the next fighting season. However, Mohib informed the government too is preparing for the upcoming fighting season as Doha peace talks are making slow progress.
