China says Indian Army must withdraw troops from Pangong Tso to make Jaishankar-Wang consensus work

The Indian Army must undo the “pre-emptive” moves it recently carried out on the south bank of Pangong Tso (lake), Beijing’s envoy to New Delhi, Sun Weidong, said on Monday, even as he refrained to commit withdrawal of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) from the territory of India.

Less than a week after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi agreed on five points during a meeting in Moscow, Beijing insisted on withdrawal of the Indian Army’s front-line troops from the face-off scenes on the south bank of Pangong Tso for the success of the consensus in resolving the stand-off along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.

Sun, Beijing’s envoy to New Delhi, on Monday, referred to the August 31 statement issued by the Ministry of Defence of the Government of India claiming that the Indian Army troops had pre-empted a military move by the Chinese PLA on the southern bank of Pangong Tso
