CHIEF of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat and Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane briefed the former Defence Ministers, A K Antony and Sharad Pawar, on the China border situation on Friday during a meeting with Rajnath Singh.
 
“The two former Defence Ministers had some clarifications and doubts on the situation which were clarified by the CDS and the Army chief,” sources said.
 
India and China had successfully disengaged in the Pangong lake area earlier this year following a stand-off along Line of Actual Control (LAC), but discussions have not led to progress towards disengagement from remaining friction points. Earlier, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi that disengagement of troops in the Pangong Lake area earlier this year had created conditions for resolving the remaining issues.
