New Delhi: India has warned once again that the tension on Ladakh’s LAC will not reduce unless China withdraws from the border completely. The Indian Diplomat, Anurag Srivastava, has revealed information that this point was clarified during the phone conversation between the Indian and Chinese Ministers of External Affairs. Even though China has withdrawn from the north and south of the Pangong Tso lake region, some Chinese soldiers are still deployed in Depsang and other regions. Against this background, the warning issued by India is significant. Meanwhile, the undersecretary at the US Defense Department agreed that Chinese aggression is responsible for the conflict on Indian LAC.
China withdrew its troops from the Pangong Tso Lake region and indicated that the border’s tension has reduced. Moreover, China supports the decision to organise the BRICS summit in India. The BRICS includes countries, India, China, Russia, Brazil and South Africa. Moreover, talks are in the air that Chinese President Xi Jinping may visit India for this summit. Thus, this paints a picture of peace and cordiality between India and China on the LAC. However, in reality, the Chinese army has not withdrawn from Depsang, Hot Springs and Gogra regions. Hence, India has drawn attention to the fact that the tension on the LAC continues.
Last week, Indian MEA S. Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi held a discussion via hotline. During the talk, China expressed that the border tensions should not affect the India-China relations otherwise. Moreover, the Indian MEA emphasised the significance of maintaining cordiality on the border for the smooth relation between the two countries. Jaishankar further warned that the Chinese troops must disengage entirely to restore peace and stability at the border.
Furthermore, Indian Diplomat Anurag Shrivastava has brought this discussion between the two countries to light. Shrivastava has given an ultimatum that the border situation cannot improve unless Chinese troops disengage entirely. Meanwhile, US undersecretary for policy at the Defence Department, Colin Kahl, warned about the rising Chinese aggression. Hence, he has said that it poses a threat to the Indian LAC. He also affirmed that the United States would back India in such a crucial situation. Moreover, the undersecretary said that the United States would reduce the strain between India and China.
