Exclusive: India-China talks continue without result, PLA continues military build-up along LAC
China is continuing to build up its military presence along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) by the deployment of artillery and armoured units close to the Indian territory. The areas where China is building up its military presence are the areas the country can reach close to Indian locations in a couple of hours.
India and China continue to face-off at multiple locations along the LAC.
Sources have told India Today TV that there have been multiple confrontations between both sides including the finger four areas where the Chinese came in large numbers to stake claim over it using both the road and the lake routes to rush in troops.
Sources have also informed India Today TV that multiple rounds of talks between commanding officers and Brigadiers from both sides have failed to change the status quo since the first week of May and now Major General level talks will be held soon to find out solutions.
“It seems that the Chinese are buying time to build up their positions in the rear side as they have brought in a large number of heavy vehicles with artillery and armoured vehicles in them and their troops,” the sources informed.
Sources said India has now moved a fairly large number of troops from different locations and other higher altitude points to the Ladakh sector to match the more than 5000 troop-strength of the Chinese.
Sources said the Indian soldiers are not allowing the Chinese to move in any direction on the Indian soil.
The aim of the Chinese soldiers was to carry out deeper incursions but the timely deployment in many of the sectors has helped the Indian side to check their intent.
Sources said the Chinese have not shown any intent to move back or to accommodate India’s objections to their actions.
In the talks, the Chinese have been opposing the Indian military infrastructure build-up in the eastern Ladakh sector especially in the DBO sector which is close to the Karakoram pass from where the LAC between the two countries starts.
