The deadlock between India and China is not being named. On the night of 29 and 30 August, Chinese troops tried to re-enter the deadlocked site in eastern Ladakh, but were repelled by the already prepared Indian jawans. However, according to some media reports, during this time there is also talk of skirmish between the soldiers of both the countries.
Army PRO Colonel Aman Anand said Indian troops had already sensed Chinese troops’ activity on the southern shore of Pangong Tso Lake and foiled infiltration attempts. He also said that the army personnel took action to thwart the Chinese intentions to strengthen the Indian post and unilaterally change the facts on the ground.
The PRO stated that the Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace through dialogue, but is equally determined to protect its territorial integrity. A brigade commander level flag meeting is going on in Chushul to resolve the issues. The army said the PLA violated the previous consent made after the military and diplomatic standoff during the ongoing standoff in eastern Ladakh. This comes at a time when talks with China to reduce border tension in eastern Ladakh are stuck in stalemate.
During recent diplomatic negotiations between India and China, it was not agreed to bridge their differences over the ceasefire and de-escalation process along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). India stressed the need to resolve issues expeditiously.
Meetings and discussions are being held continuously in India
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh recently discussed the deadlock along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh with the NSA and three service chiefs. China has also made heavy deployments to coincide with China showing its presence in LAC. Several rounds of negotiations have also taken place between the two countries.
On June 15, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a bloody clash between the two sides. More than 40 Chinese soldiers were also killed during this period. China repeatedly talks about peace, but does not desist from its antics in deadlocked areas.
