Tensions between India and China have been at their peak since the ongoing border dispute and firing incident in Ladakh. At the same time, the top political leadership and prominent people associated with national security will discuss the strategy ahead on Friday amid the ongoing tension on the Line of Actual Control (LAC).


Government sources said top political and national security leaders, including military officials, are scheduled to meet today to discuss the situation on the border from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh.


He told that in this meeting, he will be joined by senior ministers who are currently working with senior military leadership on the situation on the border. This leadership is likely to discuss the activities being carried out by the Chinese Army in Dokalam and Bhutani regions. In addition, India's preparedness to deal with China can also be discussed.


The meeting will also discuss delays in core commander-level talks, which were agreed to in diplomatic talks between the two sides in Russia. The Chinese and Indian corps commanders were to resume their negotiations after a long hiatus.

The five rounds of talks that preceded this discussion failed. Those meetings did not yield any significant results regarding the retreat of the Chinese army at points of tension. The reason behind this was that Chinese troops not only remained stationed on Finger 4, but they also strengthened their presence here.

The Chinese response to the strong Indian stance on Chinese aggression in eastern Ladakh can also be discussed by the leadership. The leaders had recently discussed the state of Chinese activities in Bhutan, where the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has amassed troops and weapons for some time.

The border dispute between India and China has continued since the April – May period, as Chinese forces infiltrated several areas from the Galvan Valley to the Finger Area along Pangong Tso Lake. However, the promptness of the Indian soldiers put the plans of China at bay.
