New Delhi/Beijing: The videos of Chinese military withdrawing from the north and south of Pangong Tso lake on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh, have been published. Although 150 Chinese tanks and five thousand soldiers have been withdrawn from the region, the LAC dispute is not resolved yet. China has still not withdrawn from Gogra Hills, Hot Spring, Depsang and other sectors. Discussions will be held between the Indian and Chinese military officials in the next 48 hours after the Pangong Tso area’s withdrawal is complete. It is being said that Gogra Hills, Hot Spring and Depsang will feature in these discussions.
The Chinese mouthpiece had claimed that the withdrawal of the Chinese military from the Pangong Tso region demonstrates the country’s commitment to peace and harmony. Simultaneously, the mouthpiece had claimed that the speed of withdrawal goes to show China’s capabilities. Global Times had warned that if necessary, China can redeploy in the region again, with the same speed. But the Indian Army is watching the Chinese withdrawal very cautiously. Therefore, assurance is being given that if China makes any intrusion attempt again, the Indian Army is in a perfect condition to retaliate. At the same time, the withdrawal of the Chinese military will be thoroughly verified.
Lieutenant General YK Joshi, Chief of Northern Command of the Indian Army, visited the Pangong Tso lake region to see Chinese withdrawal. China who withdrew from the Pangong Tso lake region has still not withdrawn from the Gogra Hills, Hot Spring and Depsang regions. The process of withdrawal from the Pangong Tso lake region will be completed first. Senior officials from both the militaries will then hold a meeting within 48 hours. This will be the 10th meeting between the officials from both the countries, regarding the LAC dispute in Ladakh.
The issue of withdrawal from Gogra Hills, Hot Spring and Depsang regions will be at the centre of the meeting. It is claimed that the Chinese military will withdraw from these regions. China will not gain anything by keeping its military deployed in these regions. Pointing to this, the analysts say that China is in no position to increase the tension in this region. At the same time, China harassed by the reactions it received from India on its intrusion in Ladakh, has realised that India cannot be hurt more. Therefore, the analysts are claiming that China will not show any aggression in this current scenario.
