India-China Military Talks To Be Held Today
Amid, Chinese troops showing no signs of pulling back from Pangong Tso and Depsang Plains in eastern Ladakh, the next round of corps-commander talks will be held on Sunday. India earlier “did not insist” on holding the fifth round of talks in view of "continuing intransigence". This comes after India's high powered China Study Group held a meeting this week to fine-tune India's strategy. The troop disengagement has been fully completed only at PP-14 in Galwan Valley, the site of the June 15 skirmish, and PP-15 in Hot Springs. The Depsang Plains have remained a major hotspot between India and China due to its strategic location providing access to India's key logistical hub and airstrip at Daulat Beg Oldie and the critical Karakoram Pass.
