NEW DELHI: A year after the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops began in Eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control, friction points do remain. Troops of both sides have disengaged from the north and south banks of Pangong Tso and talks have been on over other prickly areas such as Depsang, Gogra and hot Springs. Corps commanders have had 11 rounds of talks since the standoff began. Meanwhile, China has rotated its troops in Aksai Chin, indicating it has no plans for de-induction just yet. In this special edition of ‘The Gist’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, noted China watcher Jayadeva Ranade, strategic affairs commentator Atul Aneja and former GoC, 14 Corps, Lt Gen Rakesh Sharma (retd) discuss the road ahead and its possible implications for bilateral ties.
