India-China talks on disengagement remain deadlocked even as Rafale flies over Ladakh

Disengagement uncertain
According to a report by ET, India and China have agreed not to send more troops to the frontline in Ladakh but talks on disengagement remain deadlocked with China saying that India should vacate the forward posts it has established along the southern bank of Pangong Tso and the Indian position being that a comprehensive disengagement plan is needed to resolve all friction points along the Line of Actual Control.

Chinese objections
It is learnt that the Chinese side raised objections to India occupying key passes and heights in the Chushul sub sector, asking for troops to be withdrawn immediately. India raised the issue of PLA troops changing the status quo in the Finger area on the northern bank of the Pangong lake, as well as other sectors.

Indian sabre-rattling
Sources said the Indian Army also strengthened its dominance in over 20 strategic mountain heights around the northern and southern banks of Pangong Lake as well as in the extended general area of Chushul in the last few days even as freezing conditions are gripping the area.
