Two days after China claimed that it has completed the process of disengagement of troops in eastern Ladakh, India, on July 30, said that the process is not yet completed at most locations in the region.
Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “There has been some progress made towards this objective but the disengagement process has as yet not been completed.”
The clear assertion by India comes ahead of the new round of Lt General-level talks between the Indian army and the Chinese PLA which are set to take place very soon.
The MEA spokesperson Mr. Srivastava said that the senior commander level talks will be held in the near future to work out steps towards carrying forward the disengagement process and added further that India expects China to “sincerely” work with India for “complete disengagement and
de-escalation” and full restoration of peace in border areas at the earliest.
