Both armies are engaged in a significant standoff for more than three weeks in Pangong Tso, Galway Valley, Daualtbeg, and Demchowk. It is the most prolonged standoff since Dokhlam.
The spokesperson of the foreign ministry of China Zhao Lijian said, “Now the situation there (at India-China border) is overall stable and controllable. China and India have full-fledged border-related mechanisms and communication channels. We can resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiation.
