Why is MEA’s statement silent on India’s demand of “restoration of status quo ante as on May 5, 2020”? : P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

  • MEA’s statement last night speaks of India’s expectation as “complete disengagement and de-escalation and full restoration of peace and tranquility in the border areas”. So far, so good.
  • But why is the statement silent on India’s demand of “restoration of status quo ante as on May 5, 2020”?
  • The statement is another admission that China has changed the status quo that was prevailing on May 5.
  • It is another rebuff to the claim that “no one has intruded into India and no one is in Indian territory”
