Eastern Ladakh: India-China Faceoff, Indian Army blocks China’s attempts to change status quo

Eastern Ladakh: India-China Face of:
Indeed, even as the discussions among India and China to determine the almost four-month-long deadlock in eastern Ladakh have been stuck in an impasse since mid-July, the Indian Army said on Monday morning that China attempted to make new difficulty at another point throughout the end of the week. 

The Indian Army referenced that the Chinese soldiers attempted to change the norm on the south bank of Pangong Tso the evening of 29 August and 30 August, an endeavour that was thwarted  by the Army. 

"On the Night of 29/30 August 2020, PLA troops disregarded the past agreement showed up at during military and strategic commitment during the progressing stalemate in Eastern Ladakh and completed provocative military developments to change business as usual," the Army said in its announcement. 

"Indian soldiers pre-empted this PLA movement on the Southern Bank of Pangong Tso Lake, attempted measures to fortify our positions and foil Chinese aims to singularly change realities on ground. The Indian Army is focused on keeping up harmony and quietness through exchange, but on the other hand is similarly resolved to secure its regional respectability. A Brigade Commander level Flag Meeting is in progress at Chushul to determine the issues." 

It is noteworthy as while the north bank of Pangong Tso has been a significant purpose of dispute between the different sides in the deadlock that started toward the beginning of May, there has not been any issue with respect to the south bank of the lake as of not long ago. 

On the north bank the Chinese soldiers keep on holding the ridgeline of the Finger 4 prod, which is 8 km west of Finger 8, the spike India says the Line of Actual Control goes through. The Chinese soldiers have been fortifying their situations between Finger 8 and Finger 5 since the deadlock started, and have would not move back further. 

Aside from Pangong Tso territory, there has not been any withdrawal in the Gogra segment, as well. 

In the north, in Depsang Plains, the Chinese soldiers are at a point known as the Bottleneck, which is 18 km west of the LAC. China has blocked Indian soldiers admittance to five watching focuses in the territory, which is near the deliberately significant Daulat Beg Oldie post of India close to the Karakoram Pass in the north.
