In addition to Ladakh, India and China push to resolve “other unfinished business” across LAC: MEA | India News


NEW DELHI: India and China are pushing for resolution of “other outstanding issues” in addition to the disengagement in eastern Ladakh, raising hopes that any deal that may be finalized will include other “problem areas” in the Line of Actutal Control (LAC).
Briefing reporters, MEA spokesman Anurag Srivastava said Indian and Chinese military commanders and officers would meet again “soon”. “India and China have agreed to maintain dialogue and communication through military and diplomatic channels and, by advancing the discussions at the Senior Commanders meeting, to press for the solution of other pending issues.”
There have been reports that India and China are considering withdrawal proposals in eastern Ladakh, where the two armies have been in a stalemate since May.
Srivastava described the latest round of talks between senior military commanders on November 6 as “sincere, insightful and constructive.” The two sides, he said, “exchanged views on disengagement at all friction points along the Royal Line of Control in the western sector of the India-China border areas.”
This could include not only the northern and southern banks of the Pangong Tso, but also the pending issue on the Depsang Plains, where Indian patrols have been stopped by the Chinese side.
From August 29-30, Indian troops occupied key strategic points in the Kailash mountain range on the southern bank of the Pangong Tso, checkmating the Chinese entrance.
