China-India relation still not normal: Indian govt

New Delhi: The situation in the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is still not normal despite last month's disengagement of troops from the critical Gogra-Hot Springs in Ladakh, the Ministry of External Affairs said Friday.

"The situation is still not normal. Some positive steps have been taken, but some more need to be taken," foreign ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said at a news briefing in Delhi.

The disengagement process between Indian and Chinese troops in the Gogra-Hot Springs (PP-15) area started on September 8.

This had come after a consensus reached in the 16th round of military talks following a two-year standoff.

China has a series of border disputes with India stretching from India's Ladakh to its northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Beijing claims entire Arunachal Pradesh and considers it part of Tibet.

In June 2020, Indian soldiers engaged in a "violent face-off" with Chinese forces along the Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh, the Indian Army confirmed, adding that 20 soldiers, including a colonel, martyred in the clash.

Unconfirmed reports put the casualty on the Chinese side between 43 and 50 but China never confirmed the deaths.

India attributed the clashes "as a result of an attempt by the Chinese side to unilaterally change the status quo there."

In 2021, the two countries announced a disengagement, similar to that of Gogra-Hot Springs, from the Pangong Lake area on the disputed border in Ladakh, but other friction points remain.
