India-China continue military dialogue today


Ladakh: The Indian military and diplomatic establishment have low expectations of a positive outcome from the 15th round of India-China military commanders meeting at Chushul to resolve the nearly two-year-old stand-off in East Ladakh.

The military escalation along the 1597 km Line of Actual Control (LAC) was sparked off after the PLA decided to unilaterally change the ground positions between Galwan Valley and north of Pangong Tso lake in May 2020.

With the PLA dragging its feet in fully restoring the April 2020 status quo ante by still holding on to forward position at Gogra-Hot Springs area (general location patrolling point 15 near Kongka La), the Indian Army is on an alert mode to repel any more Chinese aggression in the area.

While the Indian Army has legacy patrolling rights issues in Depsang Bulge and Charding Nullah Junction in Demchok, it is quite evident that the PLA is in no mood to budge from their stated positions.
