There have been 10 meetings and some have stretched to 15 hours or so. That is 125 hours of discussions. After that we are still getting the "Both sides agreed to maintain peace and tranquillity" kind of press releases. Maybe progress is being made but it seems very very slow. Which means the next ten press releases will be the same.Do not be under the impression that there is no wheeling and dealing going on between IA and PLA. If there was absolutely no progress then we would not be having such frequent 10 hour meetings..
The bigger hint came from Gen Rawat was that China is facing "unanticipated consequences for its misadventure". We have to make sure they dont do such things again and maybe thats the IA goal now. Keep them in the tough Ladakh conditions for long enough that they get and keep unpleasant memories.
