Indo-Chinese forces are ready to deploy in the snow and winter on the 1,597 km long Line of Actual Control (LAC). Meanwhile, news is coming that the eighth round of military and diplomatic talks between the two countries is expected to take place within the next week.
According to senior officials, the two sides do not seem anxious to restore peace in the stalemate at the moment, but they have decided to keep the channels of dialogue open at both the military command and diplomatic levels. Negotiations are also important to ensure that no adversity is repeated at deadlocked points.
The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has proposed that both sides first remove weapons and artillery from there and then start an infantry shift. The Indian side is very clear that armored units cannot be withdrawn, as these territories and powers can benefit opponents.
