NEW DELHI: The Corps Commander-level talks between China and India have failed, yet again, as the Chinese side refused to step back from the Finger 4 area in Pangong Tso.
According to reports gathered by the Regional Telegraph, both China and India on Wednesday held fourth round of Corps Commander-level talks during which China made it clear that it would not back off from Finger 4.
This came just days after claims made by Indian media that China had not only agreed to disengage from Galwan valley, Hotsprings and Gogra but had removed its tents and other installations from those areas.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to visit Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir on July 17-18.
There are reports of massive deployment of tanks along the East Ladakh border, and nearly 60,000 soldiers have been deployed in East Ladakh along with Bhishm tanks, Apache attack helicopters, Sukhoi fighter jets, Chinook and Rudra helicopters near the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The Norther military command of India is expected to meet government leaders in order to apprise them of the latest development.
