The news comes as the two countries prepare for their 13th session of negotiations on the Ladakh standoff and military withdrawal.
13th round of negotiations between Corps Commanders
According to Army Chief General M M Naravane, the 13th round of Corps Commander-level discussions between India and China could occur in October’s second week.
After nearly seven months of tranquillity along the Line of Control, he claimed, there had been two ceasefire violations in Pakistan in the last ten days.
In an interview with the news agency ANI in eastern Ladakh, where he is on a two-day visit, Gen Naravane revealed these details.
last round of negotiations
After the last session of discussions on July 31, the two sides withdrew from Gogra Post, returning to their usual locations and establishing a temporary no-patrolling zone.
For nearly 17 months, India and China have been locked in a military standoff in eastern Ladakh. While significant sources of tension between the two sides have been disengaged, such as Galwan Valley, the north and south banks of the Pangong Tso, and Gogra Post, a small number of Chinese forces remain on the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control near Hot Springs.
“The Chinese have deployed in big numbers all throughout eastern Ladakh; not only in eastern Ladakh, but all over the northern front, right up to our Eastern Command as well,” Naravane said of China’s more significant presence along the whole LAC (meaning Arunachal Pradesh).
Concerning the Pakistan ceasefire agreement
The ceasefire deal with Pakistan, which the Directors-General Military Operations confirmed (DGMO) of the Indian and Pakistani forces in February, is now regressing, according to Gen Naravane. “Towards the end of February, a ceasefire agreement was achieved. There were no ceasefire violations till the end of June (or the beginning of July).
However, there has been an upsurge in infiltration efforts that ceasefire violations have not accompanied in recent months. There have been two ceasefire violations in the last ten days.
