The result of the WMCC meeting is probably going to decide when the senior leaders could meet straightaway. Five rounds of high level military talks have neglected to break the halt.
India-China border affairs will hold a meeting today by The Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination (WMCC) when the military dialogue between the senior’s commanders from the two sides has hit a roadblock due to Beijing’s hesitation to restore the status in some areas along the Line of Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
Here are the five things you need to know about the (India China WMCC Meet) India-China border dispute in the Ladakh sector:
1. Five rounds of top-level military talks have failed to break the deadlock differences between India and China.
2. The sizeable Chinese troop presence at friction key areas, particularly Pangong lake and Depsang plains, remains the concerned area for the Indian Army. Beijing has not yet agreed on the withdrawal, which was reached during the telephone discussion between the extraordinary envoy on the border issue and the July fifth corps administrators meeting.
3. Disengagement has progressed smoothly at friction areas in Galwan Valley and Hot Springs, but in Gogra area remains in place.
4. The consensus among the Indian officials and China experts that military taking is unlikely to deliver the results. The Indian military has gotten ready for a long stretch in the Ladakh division.
5. The dispute on the border can only begin after complete disengagement between the two armies on the LAC. The soil circumstance in the Ladakh segment, where the two militaries conveyed almost 100,000 fighters and weapons in both their forward and deep regions, stays unchanged.
