At a time when India is engaged with China in a bid to diffuse border tensions in Ladakh region, sources have revealed that a large number of Pakistani troops have been positioned along the Gilgit-Baltistan border. This can lead to an additional responsibility for the Indian Army which has already deployed a good force in Eastern Ladakh.
Sources have said that Pakistan has positioned troops equal to that of China, along its border, building up India’s border tensions at two fronts now. Sources have also revealed that Chinese army is holding talks with terror organisation Al Badr to provoke violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan has moved around 20,000 additional troops in the northern Ladakh region to match the Chinese troops’ strength. This addition is more than what Pakistan had deployed during the Balakot strikes.
On Tuesday, the Indian and Chinese militaries held an over 10-hour Corps Commander-level dialogue with a focus on finalising modalities for the disengagement of troops from various standoff points in eastern Ladakh, wherein India put forward its demand of restoration of status quo.
