Before the talks began, the Army gave advise to the media that both sides remained engaged through military and diplomatic channels
“ to address the current situation in the India China border areas”.

India’s major demand is to mend the status quo, as the beginning, early May Chinese battalion moved in large numbers into Indian territory at Pangong Tso, Galwan and Gogra in eastern Ladakh, and reduce the number of Persons of a battalion. On the other hand, china demanded to India to stop the road construction which is being carried out, to which India has stated illogical because the construction is inside the LAC.
