India Won’t Tolerate China’s Unilateral Attempts Of Altering LAC
The EA Minister S. Jaishankar has clearly said that India will not tolerate the attempts of China to alter the LAC. The bilateral relations can’t be normal without the tranquility on border.
The External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar stated, India would “not tolerate” China’s unilateral attempts to change the Line of Actual Control (LAC), and bilateral relations will not be normal as long as China maintains its military presence along the border.
In answer to inquiries about the border regions from numerous Rajya Sabha lawmakers, Jaishankar stated that military leaders from the two nations were still collaborating to figure out a solution to the sources of contention along the LAC.
The deaths of 20 Indian soldiers at Galwan Valley in June 2020, during the heaviest confrontations along the LAC in more than forty years, were brought up by MPs on Wednesday, the first day of the winter session of Parliament.
India and China have been engaged in a prolonged military confrontation in the Ladakh region since May 2020.
The impasse in locations like Depsang and Demchok has not been resolved despite more than a dozen military and diplomatic meetings.
According to Jaishankar, “diplomatically, we have been very clear with the Chinese that we will not tolerate, that we will not countenance attempts to change the LAC unilaterally, and that, as long as they continue to seek to do so and if they have built up forces, that poses a serious concern in the border areas.”
In recent years, he claimed, “the aberration of bilateral relations has been on display.” Jaishankar answered inquiries in the Rajya Sabha after making a declaration about India’s major foreign policy activities since the last legislative session in August.
Military leaders are still interacting with one another in the meantime, and given how sensitive the situation is, I think it should be handled by military leaders. Without going into any detail, he said, “I think the House should be aware of the national sensitivity of such a sensitive matter.
The two parties withdrew their frontline units from Hot Springs in September after the 16th round of military commander negotiations in July.
The latest progress was made in August 2021 when the two sides evacuated troops from Gogra. Prior to this, the removal of Indian and Chinese forces from the LAC had been delayed for more than a year.
India and China still have 60,000 troops and cutting-edge weapons deployed in the Ladakh theater despite four rounds of evacuation from Galwan Valley, Pangong Lake, Gogra, and Hot Springs.
