No decision on Siachen confrontation between India-Pak
No progress was achieved on resolving the military dispute on the Siachen glacier b/w India and Pakistan and both the sides stuck to their stated positions.
- Pakistani restated its call for demilitarization of the Siachen and moving the troops back to the positions in 1984 and also called for the resolution of the dispute in the light of arrangements discussed in 1989 and 1992
- Indian government cleared that any settlement must include the authentication and demarcation of current military positions on Siachen.The decision is targeted at foiling the possible re-induction of troops by Pakistan after any demilitarization of the glacier
