Ladakh standoff: ‘No meaningful progress’ over troop disengagement between India and China

By Times Of India

India and China are yet to agree on the modalities for the proposed troop disengagement in eastern Ladakh, making it virtually certain their soldiers will remain deployed on the forbidding heights through the long and harsh winter ahead. The seven-month-long military confrontation in eastern Ladakh “is frozen in time” now, with “no meaningful progress” being made after the eighth round of corps commander-level talks on November 6. China is adamant about the proposed disengagement beginning from the south bank of Pangong Tso-Chushul area, where Indian troops are in tactically-advantageous positions on the ridge line stretching from Thakung to Gurung Hill, Spanggur Gap, Magar Hill, Mukhpari, Rezang La and Reqin La (Rechin mountain pass) since August 29-30. India, in turn, wants the disengagement to kick off from the north bank of Pangong Tso, where the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has occupied the 8-km stretch from ‘Finger 4 to 8’ (mountainous spurs) since early-May.
