The standoff between troops of both the countries is since May this year
Both the nations India and China are standing face to face on LAC since May this year. For the disengagement of troops of both the countries, several rounds of Senior Commander-level talks have been initiated but the talks did not produce any positive effect and solution to the existing war like situation in Ladakh.
On Monday, another commander-level talks happened in Chushul, in which China raised the issue of Indian infrastructure at LAC which could poses a threat to multi-billion dollar economic corridor between Pakistan and China. However the Indian side cleared that the infrastructure built by Indian Government is far away from LAC and did not poses any threat to any country.
