The situation at LAC (Line of Actual Control) is delicate since May this year. In May, Chinese PLA (People’s Liberation Army) started to engage its troops on the Indo-Chinese border in eastern Ladakh. Many rounds of Commander-level talks have been initiated between both the countries but no fruitful outcome can be observed at the border.
China trying to win back some parts of Ladakh by making reference to 1959 Ladakh
For the newest set of talks, on Monday, at Chushul seventh round of talks between the senior military commanders took place. Both India and China has agreed to continue with the mutual dialogue process to find a solution of the rift of six months in Ladakh at LAC. The talks happened after weeks when China hardened its position on the border and implemented that it will follow the land agreements of 1959 and recognises 1959 LAC. However, the proposal is never been expected by India, whether its 1959 or 2020.
Troops of both the countries are ready to survive harsh winter at high altitude
The senior military commander meeting on Monday in Chushul stretched for more than 12 hours. Both the countries has deployed 50,000 soldiers on the border along with advanced weapons and Systems in Eastern Ladakh. As winter is approaching in the sector, it would not be easy for any of the troops to survive in that harsh cold weather, but both the countries have equipped their soldiers with all the basic needs required at such an altitude as the condition on the border could get worse any time and could lead to instant war between both the countries. However both the countries are trying to find the solution out of the situation of war, but the result will depend on the future talks of whether the condition could de-escalate or both the countries go in a state of war.
