Process on to solve standoff following Chinese incursion: Khurshid

Apr 24, 2013

New Delhi: India today said the process is on to solve the standoff arising out of Chinese troops' incursions in Ladakh and hoped a solution would emerge.

"We have a system in place which kicks in when there is an issue and then that system tries to provide a solution. That is what we are doing right now. That process is going on and I hope we will find a solution."

"I think we are going in the right direction. I do not think we should be talking about it in too much of details because let the process work out a solution. Let us not either create an impediment or a doubt about the process," External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters in New Delhi.

The Minister said the perception over the Line of Actual Control (LAC) varies between the two countries and "when perceptions vary, sometimes disagreements on the ground can take place."

He said the two countries are in the process of working towards demarcating the LAC.

Chinese troops entered Indian territory in Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO) on April 15, have established a small camp in Indian area and have refused to go back to their side of the LAC.

Two Flag meetings have been held so far between the two sides but they have failed to yield any result on the position on ground.
