Indian security agencies are keeping surveillance on the Chinese surface-to-air missile batteries which continue to remain deployed close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) near eastern Ladakh.
The People’s Liberation Army has continued the deployment of surface to air missiles including the HQ 9 and HQ 22 close to the Indian territory given the ongoing tensions, government sources told ANI.
The source also informed that the reports suggest that the number of fighter aircraft at the Hotan and Kashgar airfields have been reduced but the numbers keep fluctuating from time to time there. Although the two countries have disengaged from the Pangong lake area still the deployments by both sides continue.
China is reluctant in disengaging from the friction points at Gogra Heights, Hot Springs, Depsang plains, and CNN Junction near Demchok. Whereas, India has made it clear that it would consider de-escalation if there is disengagement by the Chinese from the friction points. For the same reason, the two sides are continuing to hold talks for further disengagement and de-escalation from other friction points in the area.
