At the 16th India-China senior military commanders conference tomorrow, New Delhi would urge the evacuation of forward posted PLA forces at patrolling point 15 (Khugrang Nullah).
At the 16th India-China senior military commanders conference tomorrow, India would stress the importance of the 10 kilometre no-fly zone convention along the Ladakh Line of Actual Control (LAC), while also seeking the evacuation of forward stationed PLA forces at patrolling point 15 (Khugrang Nullah).
Since the Chinese Army restored the April 2020 status quo ante at Gogra-Hot Springs in August 2021, there has been no progress in the PLA withdrawal. The decision to hold senior military commanders talks at Chushul on the Indian side on Sunday came after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar raised the issue of boundary resolution with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in a meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 Foreign Ministers meeting on July 7 in Bali.
While observers in Beijing are optimistic about tomorrow's meeting, the Chinese retreat from PPT 15 will be difficult because the current PLA deployment is on the shortest path between Gogra-Hot Springs and the Galwan area. PPT 14 (Galwan), 15 (Khugrang), 16 (Hot Springs), and 17 (Gogra) are located on the banks of the Khugrang Nullah and Chang Chemmo River, which are tributaries of the Shyok River.
