पूर्वी लद्दाख में विघटन और इसके बड़े प्रभावों पर विचार
8 सितंबर 2022 को पूर्वी लद्दाख के चुशुल-मोल्दो में चीन-भारत कोर कमांडर स्तर की 16वें दौर की बैठक के 50 दिन बाद जियान ला (डाबन) और PP15 क्षेत्र से चीन और भारतीय सैनिकों के पीछे हटने पर सहमति बनी। चूँकि PP15 रिज लाइन और कुरंग नाला के समीप एक महत्वपूर्ण बिंदु था, क्योंकि चीनी सेना ने देपसांग बुलगे से जियान ला तक एक सड़क का निर्माण किया हुआ है। भारतीय सेना द्वारा इस क्षेत्र में पेट्रोलिंग, पीएलए को अस्वीकार्य था। PP15 क्षेत्र में दोनों सेनाओं की 'आम सहमति' और स्थिति स्पष्ट नहीं है। पहले से चली आ रही विघटन प्रक्रिया को ध्यान में रखते हुए भारतीय पेट्रोलिंग दल के लिए कुरांग नाला के समीप पेट्रोलिंग की

Tensions in Taiwan Strait must not be Allowed to Develop into a Regional/Global Crisis – Part I
The island nation of Taiwan is caught in the cross-fire between the US-China spat and navigating through turbulent waters after Beijing almost violently reacted by firing missiles into the Taiwanese waters in response to the US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s surprise visit to Taiwan. This stoked tensions further. Not to remain quiet and with a view to send a strong message to Beijing that Washington would not abandon Taiwan in any circumstance and defend if the island nation comes under Chinese attack, more foreign delegations queued up to visit Taiwan in defiance of China.
Next Step in Disengagement in Eastern Ladakh and Contemplating Larger Implications
On 8th September 2022, 50 days after the 16th Round of China-India Corps Commander Level Meeting at Chushul-Moldo in Eastern Ladakh, consensus was reached on disengagement of the Chinese and Indian troops in the area of Jianan La (Daban) also designated at PP15. Apparently, PP15 at the highest point, the Pass on the ridge line, approached along the upper reaches of Kurang Nalla, had been a sticking point, as the Chinese have constructed a road from Depsang Bulge to Jianan La. Patrolling by the Indian army patrols to the Pass was unacceptable to the PLA.
