After Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the issue of Chinese incursions in Ladakh with Chinese President Xi Jinping, India on Saturday said it was carefully following the process initiated by Mr. Modi and an outcome was awaited.
The reaction by Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Syed Akabaruddin came in response to a question that despite being raised with China, the situation in Chumar and Demchok was the same and there was still the presence of Chinese there.
“Diplomacy is not an instant coffee. It works in ways that it is difficult for the people who are not engaged with it to perceive and understand what is happening. You are aware that >India at the highest level has taken it up and also what our public statements are...Therefore... allow this process to function.
“I assure you that the process that was initiated by the Prime Minister is being carefully followed and (we are) awaiting an outcome,” the spokesperson said.
