The meeting came in the backdrop of talks on the disengagement of troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC)
Indian Ambassador to China Vikram Misri on Tuesday met a senior leader of the ruling Communist Party of China to discuss bilateral relations and the prevailing situation along the borders with eastern Ladakh.
According to a report published by Outlook India, Misri’s meeting with Liu Jianchao, Deputy Director of the Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee Foreign Affairs Commission, came in the backdrop of talks on the disengagement of troops from areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh that have seen tensions over the past few months.
The report pointed out that India has been stressing on China to ensure complete disengagement of troops in the region.
The Chinese People''s Liberation Army (PLA) has withdrawn troops from Galwan Valley and some other friction points. The process of withdrawal, however, has not happened from the Finger areas in Pangong Tso, Gogra and Depsang as demanded by India, said the report published by Outlook.
Other than diplomatic and military discussions, India has also adopted some internal measures to curb the Chinese activities at the border. A list of Chinese apps has been banned in India and products imported from China have been put to strict check. Besides, some Chinese individuals along with their Indian associates, bankers and chartered accountants have been raided by the Income Tax Department over allegations of money laundering.
