Before de-escalation, China asks India to vacate key heights in eastern Ladakh; Army demands LAC roadmap first

Adamant China does not seem to budge from its own positions in the eastern Ladakh region which it has illegally taken over in the past few months, but demands India to vacate strategic heights on the southern bank of Pangong Tso lake prior to de-escalation talks on the Line of Actual Control, top Army officials have said.

The belligerent Chinese side reportedly told India during the last Corps Commander-level talks that it won’t discuss disengagement as long as India doesn’t vacate the positions. Both countries are in a war-like situation after the Chinese People’s Liberation Army continuously provoked Indian Army troops since April this year.

The PLA troops are hell-bent on first resolving the matter on the south bank where the Indian Army is in a tactically strong position, but India has demanded a roadmap for de-escalation along the LAC in eastern Ladakh to be first drawn out.
