China has reportedly brought back the tent-like structure that Indian troops had destroyed on June 15 near Patrol Point 14 (PP 14) in the Galwan Valley.

The activities by Chinese troops have again sparked tensions that were expected to diffuse after Monday’s corps commander-level talks, ET reported.

According to reports, Indian troops have physically verified the reappearance of a tent and this has been spotted in fresh satellite imagery as well.

Both sides had vacated the site after the violent clashes at Galwan valley in Eastern Ladakh in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed by Chinese PLA.

The Chinese tent was dismantled during the skirmish, following which the two sides agreed on talks through senior military and diplomatic channels.

The construction of a new tent even as talks make slow progress is bound to have a debilitating impact on efforts to disengage the troops, reports said.

Sources confirmed that satellite images show significant construction activity by the Chinese side at Patrol Point-14, including new defences and a hardened shelter for troops.
