China proposes “Doklam-type” pull-back in Ladakh: India withdraws troops first, can claim China pulled back first


By Ajai Shukla

Business Standard, 24th Oct 20

 

With Indian and Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh facing the prospect of winter in deep sub-zero temperatures, howling winds and low oxygen levels, New Delhi and Beijing are discussing a disengagement plan that might allow soldiers on the 16,000-foot heights around Pangong Tso lake to withdraw to easier locations.

 

Government sources say Beijing is pressuring New Delhi to accept what would be publicly called a “mutual troop withdrawal”, but would, in fact, require Indian soldiers to withdraw first from their tactically advantageous positions south of Pangong Tso lake.

 

Only after Indian troops withdraw from their dominating heights, such as Point 5167, Bump, Magar Hill and Requin La; would the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) pull back from its positions on Helmet Top and Black Top in the same area.

 

It is learnt that Chinese negotiators, mindful of New Delhi’s sensitivity to public opinion, are assuring Indian officials that the Indian side would be allowed to announce first that the Chinese had pulled back. Beijing is offering assurances that it will not counter such a claim from New Delhi.

 

Chinese negotiators are offering a similar plan for a “mutual withdrawal” from the heights above the so-called Fingers – mountain spurs that run down to the north bank of Pangong Tso. Here again, India is being asked to withdraw first from positions above Finger 2 and Finger 3.

 

Only after India withdraws to the area of Finger 2, would the PLA withdraw from the Finger 3 top to the area of Finger 4. 

 

Even after such a withdrawal, the Chinese would be in occupation of the territory up to Finger 4. That means the Line of Actual Control (LAC) would have been moved eight kilometres westwards from the pre-April LAC at Finger 8.

 

China wants to discuss this proposal in the 8th round of senior military commanders’ talks that are expected to be held next month in Ladakh.

 

Indian negotiators, including officers from the Leh-based 4 Corps as well as officials from the Ministry of External Affairs, are wary of the pitfalls in the Chinese proposal – which they term a “Doklam-type solution.”

 

In 2017, during a border face-off between Indian troops and the PLA in Doklam, Bhutan, the government of India accepted a similar “mutual troop withdrawal”, which actually required Indian troops to withdraw first.

 

However, the PLA did not keep its end of the bargain. Chinese troops withdrew only partially from Doklam and then re-entered the disputed area in greater numbers once public attention had turned away from that face-off.

 

In case New Delhi does not accept a mutual withdrawal on its terms, the PLA has begun strengthening its defences in the areas where it has trespassed. According to sources, PLA troops have been observed reinforcing their over-ground defences by constructing underground tunnels and bunkers. Major construction work has been observed across the front, especially in the Pangong south bank area.

 

Another worrying factor for Indian negotiators is that the Chinese are refusing to discuss any withdrawal in the Depsang area, where the PLA is ensconced 15-18 kilometres inside the LAC.

 

Government sources say there is apprehension in New Delhi that Depsang was China’s primary objective in the multiple intrusions. Having reached its claim line here, Beijing is willing to talk about other sectors, but not Depsang.

 

In the seven rounds of military-to-military talks held so far, China has resisted including the Depsang intrusions in the agenda. Nor has New Delhi insisted on discussing Depsang.

 

The Indian Army did not deny a query from Business Standard asking whether “the government is considering a package proposal for a mutual troop withdrawal from the south bank of Pangong Tso, which involves Indian troops withdrawing first from the heights they hold.”

 

“There is nothing that can be shared with you at this moment,” responded an army spokesperson.

 

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had admitted on October 15 that New Delhi and Beijing were engaged in talks to resolve the situation. “Discussions are on; what is going on is something confidential between us and the Chinese,” he said.

 

The army did not comment either on whether India was insisting on discussing troop withdrawals from the Depsang sector.

  1. NSR says ---

    I have written dozens of times everywhere...

    1. Criminal china and depraved PLAGF did or will not honor any agreement it made since 1993 or most recently in 2020... every agreement was completely dishonored and violated to the hilt... No agreement of any kind will be honored in future at all...

    2. It was foolish of NSA Doval to even come up with a damning and watershed agreement - buffer zones and withdrawals from Indian lands; no foot or UAV patrols in flash points; no further status quo change after India captured strategic heights, meaningless Corps commander and local commanders meetings, etc

    3. Deceptive and backstabbing china never want to withdraw at all.. it needed time to bring in more troops and armaments, and living quarters, and build infrastructure and fortifications, etc

    4. Depsang/DBO is criminal china's main prize for which it invaded... Next year there will be an existential crisis as it will start pressing DBO ALG, Siachen, and Karakoram passes and mountain tops...

    No there is no way for Xing Jing Pign to withdraw .... too late to withdraw without losing face...

    Forget about talks and start occupying all strateg Mountain Tops and Passes and start cutting their logistics during winter until it realizes its futility of its cause and sufferings...

    Get ready and go to action...

    Time to go to action...

    3. Fantastic situational overview with historical facts & 100% correct conclusions...I'd be surprised if willy Dobhal falls for Chinese deceptions. Let me go a step further: This winter, India should plan to give nasty surprise to Chinese at 1 or 2 points of LAC (Utt'khand /DBO) with the objective of cutting-off & recapturing some territories lost to them in 1962

    5. 101% Correct. No more withdrawal from LAC. Move forward by capturing strategic heights / points. It will increase pressure on China. We need to bring in Depsang in discussion, if China is not bringing it up. Why discussion only on points put up by China? We should also foot down on Depsang.

    6. China has occupied Tibet. Tibet is not part of China. Let China declare independence io Tibet. We deal with Tibet. This China is aggressor. Xinjiang is also disputed territory, similarly it has occupied part of Mangolia also. China claim many territoties under guise of Gengis Khan. Gengis Khan is a looters. China wants to usurp other's territories under looter's ideology. We should stand against these looters. You cannot satisfy a looter.

    7. Knowing the Chinese treachery Indian government and the Indian army should be firm. Rather Indian government should tell the Chinese-pla to withdraw from our land (occupation by the Chinese) completely. And i am sure BJP government will stay firm and tell the Chinese government to back off completely so that we take back all those areas previously occupied by the pla with treachery. THERE CANNOT BE ANY NEGOTIATION AND FOR WHAT?? LET THE PLA COMPLETELY VACATE FROM INDIAN BORDER TERRITORY AND GO BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY. IF THEY USE FORCE THEN WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT BACK AND REGAIN OUR OCCUPIED AREA. THERE IS A SAYING IN HINDI..."LATHO KA BOOTH BATHON SE NAIHN MANTHA"

  2. So when we withdraw from the Pangong heights, both north and south, disadvantageous as they are from a pre-April standpoint, we will be left with no bargaining chips on the Depsang and Hot Springs intrusions. And so I fully expect CDS Rawat to submit to this proposal because he and his commanders have shown us why they can be trusted to bungle up 100% over the past 6 months.

    1. Yes, we should not withdraw from India's it's position, Chinese are treacherous creature's mind India must pressuise pla to withdraw firs, otherwise force pla drive away from that area no compromise on our superirity

  3. It is somewhat disappointing that India has to always play by our adversary's rule. Indian military's lack of credible offensive capability is becoming a serious choke point. I think pullback will happen after elections. I am more concerned by they lying of both the political and military leadership.

    I am so glad we have journalist like you who are not afraid of exposing the truth.

      Indian claim on aksai chin or land up to LOC is at best imaginary.And also the land is almost
      uninhabited,harsh,barren,not of much value(As useless as Siachin)
      Why fight a mighty enemy for an useless piece of real estate by spending billions and losing soldiers in hundreds or thousands?
      The only party with vested interest in this nonsensical conflict is defence establishment which corners sizable tax payers money without accountability.Off course pseudo nationalist parties too have vested interest in this conflict but the secendory.

    3. Just to consider your point of view, why do you think China and Pakistan are trying to occupy those wastelands? I am sure they are also spending so much money, if not more than us to occupy those territories. How will you define the value of land anywhere when it is a matter of the country and its territories?

    5. Game plan of china is very clear. And all their moves are to ensure they succeed in their plan. They plan well and many years in advance keeping their countries interest in mind. So let us not talk about useless piece of land. Then ask yourself why the Chinese government-pla are interested in that piece of land. Problem with India is we have two neighbors who would like see India breaking up into tiny island nations. Boss...just think if your next door neighbor is powerful entity and he occupies your legitimate space then what you do??? To safeguard what is yours you will go to any extend. Correct me if i am wrong.
      If India cave in then tomorrow Pakistan will become more bold. The day BJP government made entire j&k a union territory both the Chinese and the Pakistan government and their military knew the reason for this decision. They know the present day Indian government can take bold steps and firm decisions unlike the previous Indian government. It is better to remember India is not an invader unlike our neighbors. Ponder it.

  13. The Chinese are proven liars and pickpockets. They are scared of war but they scare Indians with their stupid videos and fake J-20.

    1. Please set Discussion Agenda with Doval and not with Jaishankar,FM.
    2. Let China withdraw FIRST from Depsang Plains and North Psongang Tso Lake.
    3. Tell them we are a Nuclear Power and we will bomb them back to Pre Historic man; move Agni 5 to Arunachal Pradesh to Target Chinese cities!!
    4. Tell them that their presence in Pakistan POK will be seen as an Act of War and India will incinerate Pakistan POK!!
    5. THIS IS THE TIME TO ATTACK POK and FINISH CPEC. China will NOT DARE ATTACK in Western Theatre.

    Indians, please do NOT get scared; the Chinese have more to lose. The Chinese will immediately move back as they face the USA in the China Sea!! This is the best of times for India as US is BALKANISING CHINA. Only Indians have to develop their guts and a spine. One Chachaji had neither; Indians are paying a heavy price for his weaknesses.The Chinese understand strength; develop a spine and attack POK as it is Indian territory. China will be forced to NOT militarily help Pakistan; Pakistan will be destroyed and POK and Gilgit Baltistan will be ours. Written by a true Indian patriot and nationalist.

  20. The offer should be accepted. Regardless of whether it's considered a fair deal or not, India simply doesn't have the economic and military capacity to wage war against China. Continuing with the standoff is based on a delusional belief that India will somehow in a short time close the gap with China. However, India will take 40 years to get to where China currently is economically.

China should go back to pre April20 position including doklam only then we need to consider a pull back. Otherwise let our soldiers be at our backyard. It's the Chinese who have to haul everything thing from thousands of miles which will drain them faster...we need to just stay put...that's all.

  27. India needs to immediately start war with China in Ladakh. Indian soldiers prefer die in a battle, than freeze to death, and that is what is going to happen, now that winter wears that are on order will mostly not arrive until next winter, the earliest.

    I really don't understand India philosophy on war preparation, always ordering essential items at the last minutes. That is not how you should fight a war that you want to win, especially against a country like China.

    Second thought, India should just capitulate for it can neither survive winter in Ladahk nor win a war with China.

  28. No negotiations. No withdrawals from LAC. Once you lost footing on tactically stratagical points it will be difficult to regain. Further don't burn crores in vain acquiring armaments and Rafals without any gain or engagement on the ground simply for prolonged and futile negotiations. Why the Chinese put forward the idea of mutual withdrawal and at the same time insist India withdrew first, what's the gurantee those rats will honour their word. Once you move back, you are trapped in the high altitude in winter. The local populations and the Tibetans all are in favor of India. So act accordingly and solve the problems permanently without giving the much precious weapon ( time )to the enemy. time

Because his electorate base is weak minded , he can get away with anything and come out looking good before his followers who are naive and child.like to believe any narrative.

  33. are we in a position to maintain our tibetan militia now holding Point 5167, Bump, Magar Hill and Requin La from november to april. will there be a system of rotation of personnel. no human, or even a yak or marmot, can remain there for seven bitterly cold months and live to tell the tale. do our bravehearts have some semblance of a windproof shelter or perhaps our combat engineers have managed to construct partially below ground bunkers for them. while many of them are of the khampa community blessed with the tibetan variant of EPAS1 gene that allows many tibetans and sherpa to function at extremely high altitudes despite the low levels of oxygen the presence of this gene will not help when exposed to howling winds for those perched on a ridge line, at the crest of a hill top during the months of peak winter.

  44. Whichever step India takes under the "negotiation agreement" one thing India SHOULD KEEP IN MIND: For China it (agreement) is not the end of war with India; it is a tactical step only. Winter or no winter, China will again do what it did to India in June 2020. Better, do not vacate the heights, which again will not be possible to so occupy. Better, construct underground housing complex for our army. Better, come to terms with reality: China will fight till the end.

    Proper oxygen enriched heated habitat from which patrols can emerge
    China has prefabricated these shelters and buried them in concrete underground bunkers, they are solar heated.
    Fibre optic cable and additional Power is being supplied.
    Helipads are have been built and arrangements for hourly hot food delivery by drone aircraft to supplement backup kitchens.
    INDIA IS TRYING TO REPLICATE THE PRIMITIVE SIACHEN GLACIER ACCOMMODATION
    INDIA HAS ASKED FOR THE WITHDRAWAL NOT CHINA
    Looks as if the Chinese are feeling Sorry for the Indian soldier
    Just as every Indian should have felt sorry for our soldiers stuck up at Saichen for years.
    Those who wrote about the1962 war from the Chinese side were compassionate towards the Indian soldier sent there without winter clothing
    Expect more of the same from Chinese retired soldiers thirty years from now.
