The Times of India: LAC: India, China complete Gogra disengagement, but Depsang remains a major problem

Fri August, 2021, Age: 2 years

India and China have militarily disengaged from the 15-month-long faceoff in the Gogra region, one the several ‘friction’ points in eastern Ladakh,  at patrolling point-17A (PP-17A), which is near India’s crucial Gogra post. But the faceoff at another friction point in the Gogra-Hot Springs-Kongka La sector, PP-15, still continues even though there are just 40-50 rival soldiers each in close proximity there. China continues to rebuff India’s attempts to take forward the discussions on the strategically-located Depsang Bulge area, as well as the tents pitched inside Indian territory in Demchok to the south.
