India-China military dialogue on East Ladakh stalled, PLA refuses to budge

The India-China senior military commanders’ marathon dialogue on Sunday did not yield any result with the Chinese Army not willing to address de-escalation in three remaining friction points on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in East Ladakh. The remaining friction points are Hot Springs, Depsang Bulge and Charding Nullah Junction.

It appears from the statements issued by two armies that the Chinese PLA was not inclined to go beyond the de-escalation agreed in the 12th round of dialogue. The Chinese statement is sanctimonious and asks India to cherish the past resolutions.
