Border row: India, China hold talks

With the third flag meeting likely to be conducted on Friday, India on Wednesday said that negotiations are in progress at ‘various levels’ to resolve the incursion issue with China peacefully. The earlier two flag meetings have reportedly been inconclusive.

‘Our government will take every step to protect the national integrity and security’, defence minister Antony said. India had on Tuesday asked China to revert to the status quo position in Depsang Valley in Ladakh, where troops of both countries were in a face-to-face situation.

After pitching camp 100  kilometres inside the country, China has been trying to put the blame on India for its transgressions.

During the last flag meeting, China put conditions for withdrawing from Indian territory, asking the Indian Army to destroy certain fortified positions in the so called disputed territory in eastern Ladakh in return for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) removing its temporary camp in Depsang valley. This follows its demand that India freeze troop levels at the border, stop night patrolling and lays off from tailing Chinese patrols.
