India China Standoff: After 8 rounds of meetings, the participants in the meet on the Indo-China border have come back with a breakthrough. The Chinese have agreed to discuss the entire Ladakh region for the first time. The positions of both sides will be documented in the final step. This is a step closer to the de-escalation process.
This is probably for the first time that the Indian participants have a sense that this situation can be resolved without the use of any kind of offensive power on each side. As per the sources the de-escalation process is to be completed by November end.
