India-China Border Standoff: Crucial High-Level Talks At Chushul Near LAC Tomorrow
India is likely to insist on the restoration of the status quo as it existed before May 5 in Eastern Ladakh during the scheduled meeting at the Lt General level talks on June 6 between Indian Army and Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). As per sources in the defence establishment, the agenda of meeting include disengagement of troops from two areas near ‘Finger 4’ in Eastern Ladakh, soldiers’ assault, removal of heavy-build up at disputed sites and follow the procedures laid out in various bilateral agreements and protocols, including the one signed in 2013. In 2013 Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA) between India and China, it was agreed upon that the two sides shall not follow or tail patrols of the other side in areas where there is no common understanding of the LAC.
