Ladakh Standoff: India rejects new Chinese proposal to resolve LAC confrontation

Leh: China has been unwilling to move beyond the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh with People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers staying put at their positions inside Indian territory. 


The two sides are conducting dialogue at the military and diplomatic levels in order to resolve the dispute. These talks have not been fruitful until now as the Chinese have repeatedly proved to be unwilling to fulfill their commitments.


Now, in yet another move to mislead the Indian side and prolong the crisis, the Chinese have come up with a preposterous proposal.



According to this latest mockery by the Chinese, the troops on both sides should move back by equal distances from the standoff point at Finger-4 in the Pangong Tso area.


However, this Chinese proposal has been rejected outright by the Indian delegation.


"The Chinese side had made a suggestion that both India and China should go back equidistantly from the Finger-4 area. The suggestion is not acceptable to the Indian side," ANI quoted sources as saying.


The PLA forces have moved to the the Finger 5 near the Pangong Tso from their original positions beyond Finger 8. The Chinese have deployed a large number of troops and military equipment along the five-kilometer stretch between Finger 5 and Finger 8. This has prompted the Indian Army to move forward from Finger 2 and station soldiers at Finger 4, directly opposite the Chinese positions.
