These days what is happening in Ladakh between India and China is everybody’s eye. Violent clashes took place between the two countries and then a round of negotiations also started. But experts are clearly seeing that China is not going to be such an eagle. Actually from above it looks like border dispute but China has big planning behind it. And China will keep trying again to fulfill its planning.
The reason behind all this is the big plan Belt and Road of Chinese President Xi Chinping. It will pass from Xinjiang to Karakoram Pass, then via Siachen to Pakistan and Balochistan. China wants the entire Galvan valley to be hers so that there is no threat to this route. Experts believe that Chinese soldiers may still agree to return from Galvan Valley, but they will definitely come back.
So what is the attempt to deflect deployment in Depsang?
Experts also believe that China has made a lot of planning to fully capture Galvan Valley. On Thursday, it was reported that China has agreed to withdraw troops from Galvan but has deployed PLA in Depsang. Depsang is near Karakoram and the Indian airstrip. Experts believe this may be part of an attempt to divert attention. That if India deploys troops in Depsang more than Galvan, then it can try to grab the land in Galvan.
Depsang is strategically important because it is close to India’s Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) Airstrip. The Karakoram Pass is also about 30 km from here. The Indian Army has already deployed a large number of soldiers here. The Indian Army is very close to LAC. The deployment of troops from both sides is continuously increasing throughout the LAC.
Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) raised China’s concern
The deployment of the Chinese army near Depsang also shows his fear. Indeed, with its help, India is ready to face any attack from China. Because it has made the army easy to reach from Leh. China also fears that the DBO may lead to India’s access to Xinjiang.
