Ladakh: Face-off between Chinese and Indian troops continues in Chumar sector of Ladakh as the flag meeting held to find a solution to the situation remained inconclusive.
Indian Army sources say that a brigadier-level flag meeting was held at a border personnel meeting point in Chushul where the situation in Chumar was discussed.
This was the second flag meeting that has taken place in the last one week between the two sides to defuse the situation.
Notably Chinese soldiers had reportedly entered into area controlled by India. Media reports say that the issue of ‘intrusion’ of Chinese civilians in the Demchok area was also discussed during the flag meeting.
There were reports that about 300 Chinese soldiers surrounded about 100 Indian soldiers in this area.
Media reports quote undisclosed Indian Army sources saying that the army was handling the situation.
Chumar is one of the very few places along the Line of Actual Control where access to the border areas is easier from the Indian side and this place has witnessed several face-off situations in the last two-three years.
