The Chinese PLA has stopped access to those patrolling points. These areas come under the area between Finger 4 and Finger 8. China changed the status quo in early June and started entering this area.

The area between Finger 4 and Finger 8 is disputed and both parties patrol here. However, since the Chinese PLA changed the status quo and mutual-understanding, access stopped for troops.

The Hindu Reported that Patrol Points 9,10,11,12,12A,13,14,15,17, and 17A are blocked by the Chinese PLA. The points range from Depsang plains to Pangong Tso lake North.  There are a total of 65 Patrol Points from the Karakoram to Chumar.

At the talks, the Chinese commanders make untenable demands of India vacating all administrative and strategic heights near LAC. They want India to vacate the heights of Pangong Tso and Kurang Nala.

Chinese aggression in the Depsang area is not much discussed.

The Core Commanders talk, talk between defense ministers and foreign ministers of both the countries did not yield many results. China and India have spoken about disengagement, but the crisis is far from over.

Chinese PLA has changed the status quo and in response, India has taken an aggressive approach. India has taken control of heights near the Pangong Tso Lake to give a clear message to China, in a language they understand.
