Elaborating additional, the assertion stated that India’s everlasting publish on the north financial institution of Pangong Tso is close to Finger three whereas China’s is at east of Finger eight.
“The current agreement provides for cessation of forward deployment by both sides and continued deployment at these permanent posts,” it stated.
