Check out major developments in Indo-China talks
According to a news report published in Indian Express, during the recent eleventh commander level talks between India and China, China has asked India to ‘be happy with what has been achieved.’
The talks are aimed at resolving the Ladakh standoff between the two countries. China has refused to back off from the Hot springs and Gogra Plains. Earlier China had disengaged at Pangong Tso lake area but now it has refused to recede back.
The Patrolling Point (PP)15 is located in an area known as the Hot Springs, while PP17A is near an area called the Gogra post. The post at Depsang Plain has been traditionally blocked by China since 2013 and is a major point for India which is very well within the Indian side.
Both sides had agreed to disengage from PP14 (Galwan Valley), PP15 and PP17A after the third round of meeting of the senior military commanders in June, following the Galwan Valley clashes. However, though China pulled back its troops from PP14, it did not complete the disengagement from PP15 and PP17.
