The reaction by External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Syed Akabaruddin came in response to a question that despite being raised with China, the situation in Chumar and Demchok region was the same and there was 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,” Akabaruddin said.

"I assure you that the process that was initiated by the Prime Minister is being carefully followed and (we are) awaiting an outcome," he added.
