The Indian defence minister's visit comes at a time when India and China have been engaged in negotiations to disengage in Depsang Valley and Pangong lake - where the China's People's Liberation Army has been camping in the four finger region of Pangong Tso, an area which had historically been under India's control.
India and China have been engaged in a border standoff in the Eastern Ladakh sector and other different points along the 4,057-km Line of Actual Control since the last week of April.
