- Chinese set up tents near Charding Nala in Demchok, Eastern Ladakh
- Twelfth round of military commander level talks between the two countries soon
- Tension is not decreasing on India-China border, both countries are increasing military strength
The tension on the border between India and China does not seem to be reducing. At the same time, the deployment of troops and construction work along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is also going on from the Chinese side. Now news is coming that the Chinese have set up tents on the Indian side near Charding Nala in Demchok in eastern Ladakh. The people living in these tents are being described as ‘so-called citizens’. They have been asked to return from India, despite this their presence remains.
There has been a face-off between Indian and Chinese soldiers
According to the news published in the Indian Express, these tents have been set up on the Indian side. There has been a face-off between Indian and Chinese soldiers in Demchok in the past as well. In the 1990s, at a meeting of the India-China Joint Working Groups (JWG), both sides agreed that Demchok and Trig Heights were disputed points on the LAC.
Military-level talks will resume to reduce the tense situation on the India-China border. The twelfth round of military commander level talks between the two countries was to be held on 26 July i.e. on this day. However, on behalf of India, this date was changed and asked to talk on the second day. Indian Army is celebrating Kargil Vijay Diwas today. If sources are to be believed, now the Corps Commander level talks are likely to be held in the first week of August.
where is the matter stuck
An officer aware of the whole matter says that despite the delay in talks at the Corps Commander level, both sides are in constant touch on the hotline. Since the standoff began, the two sides have exchanged messages about 1,500 times on hotlines in Daulat Beg Oldi and Chushul. Sources say that talks could not progress because India wants a complete withdrawal of troops from all points of confrontation first. At the same time, China is only ready to reduce the number of soldiers.
According to a senior government official, the situation remains the same at present but it is not the same as it was in 2019. Although much better than last year. Since February, there has been no violation from the Chinese side nor has there been any face-off between the two armies. The officer said that the soldiers of both the sides are not ignoring anything at present. He said that due to the lack of trust between the two sides, about 50,000 soldiers of both the countries are stationed in these areas.
India’s eye on China’s move
Sources say that China is increasing the activity of its troops in Eastern Ladakh and is developing military infrastructure at a very fast pace. According to sources, about four divisions of Chinese troops are stationed in the deep areas along the G219 highway, which passes through Aksai Chin. On the part of India, there is an emphasis on upgrading infrastructure as well as increasing military strength.
Senior government officials say that Indian soldiers are stationed at all important places. If China tries to recapture the heights of the Kailash range, we will go somewhere else. A clear message has been given that if there is any effort from their side, then India’s next step will be much greater.
