Indian security agencies are keeping a close watch on Chinese surface-to-air missiles, which are positioned close to the Line of Actual Control near eastern Ladakh. Government sources said that the Chinese People's Liberation Army is continuing to deploy surface missiles including HQ and HQ22 in the wake of the ongoing tension. The HQ-9 is a reverse engineered version of the Russian S-300 air defense missile system and can hit targets at a range of about 250 km. 

Sources said that we are keeping a close watch on air defense systems and other missiles deployed by China stationed there. He said that recent reports suggest that the number of fighter jets in the Hotan and Kashgar airfields has decreased, but the number fluctuates from time to time. Even though both countries have withdrawn troops from the Pangong Lake area, deployment by both sides to other areas continues.

The Chinese side in the talks are showing reluctance to move away from the remaining collision points at the CNN junction near Gogra Heights, Hot Springs, Depsang Plains and Demchok. India has made it clear that it will consider withdrawing its army if China withdraws troops from the conflict points. Since last year, a large number of soldiers of Indian and Chinese forces have been deployed along the border.

Army structure and troop deployment have also been strengthened in the Sugar Region, Central Zone and Northeast Borders. The Indian Army was successful in removing the army from the Finger Area due to Indian strategic operations on the southern coast of Pangong Tso. The two sides continue to negotiate to withdraw and withdraw troops from other confrontation points in the area near the border.
