Lt General-level border meeting next on agenda

After yesterday’s meeting, India and China will have military commanders working out the disengagement.

New Delhi, September 11

After India and China agreed to resolve border tensions, the Indian Army will “wait and watch” while carrying out a ground assessment of the People’s Liberation Army of China and its moves to see if those match with the diplomatic words of Beijing.

Military positions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) have hardened since the Indian side in June suggested the restoration of the April status quo. China first agreed to a phased withdrawal and then backtracked. It has not moved back from its positions along the LAC.

After yesterday’s meeting, India and China will have military commanders working out the disengagement. Both sides will physically verify the pullback process, which could start after a Lt General-level meeting.

The meeting could be held early next week to implement the plan discussed in Moscow, sources said. — TNS
