India Rejects China’s Proposal To Retreat From LAC
China has proposed that if the Indian Army steps back from the area of Pangong lake, Chinese troops will also do the same.
Even as efforts are underway to diffuse the border tensions between India and China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near eastern Ladakh, China has proposed to Indian Army that if it steps back from the Finger 4 area of Pangong Lake, then the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) too will step back the same distance. India has rejected this proposal and has demanded that China restore the status quo in all areas of eastern Ladakh on the border.
In April, the PLA troops reached Tibet on the pretext of conducting exercises, it violated the LAC and built several infrastructures in many places. Apart from troops; tanks, aircraft and other weapons were also deployed in those areas. Since then, the Indian Army and Air Force troops have been stationed at LAC for the past three months. According to sources, China has said that it is ready for disengagement.
