Indian Ambassador Met Senior Chinese Official Over Ladakh, Discussed bilateral relations

Indian Ambassador Vikram Misery on Wednesday held a meeting with a senior official of the ruling Communist Party of China in which he discussed the border and bilateral relations of East Ladakh.  Vikram Misery had diplomatic and military talks with Liu Jianchao, deputy director of the Communist Party of China's Foreign Affairs Commission.

The Indian Embassy tweeted, "Ambassador @VikramMisri today met Liu Jianchao, Deputy Director of the CPC Central Committee's Office of Foreign Affairs and told him about India's stand on the border of the Union Territory of Eastern Ladakh and bilateral relations.  

No further information was given about the meeting.  This meeting of Misery and Leu is taking place under such circumstances when the military withdrawal talks between the two countries on LAC are not going forward successfully.  In the new round of military talks, the Indian side insisted on the complete displacement of Chinese troops in all areas of eastern Ladakh at the earliest and to restore the immediate situation.  If sources are to be believed, the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has retreated from the Galvan valley and some areas, but has not repelled its troops in Pangong Tso, Gogra and Depsang as demanded by India.

India has been insisting that China should withdraw its forces from the areas between Finger Four and Eight.  The individual hills in the area are divided into Fingers. The withdrawal of troops began on July 6, a day after a nearly two-hour telephonic conversation between National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on ways to reduce tensions in the region.
