No breakthrough in India-China border parleys after a marathon meeting

No breakthrough has been reported in the India-China border parleys along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) as per media reports.

The marathon talks began at around 9 a.m in Moldo on the Chinese side of the LAC across India’s Chushul sector in eastern Ladakh and ended at 11 p.m on September 21.

Indian side was headed by Lt Gen Harinder Singh, Commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps. It insisted on a time-bound implementation of the agreement finalized during the meeting of External Affairs minister S. Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Moscow on the sidelines of a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

India is insisting that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) begins the disengagement process and starts pulling back its troops.

Beijing meanwhile has asked New Delhi to vacate the positions “occupied” by the Indian army on the south bank of Pangong Tso.

Both countries are expected to continue meeting in order to achieve a breakthrough.
