Besides the Prime Minister, the meeting was attended by Defence Minister AK Antony, Army Chief JJ Singh, National Security Advisor MK Narayanan and others to work out a mechanism to assess whether troops withdrawal was feasible in summer months when snow melts from the mountain passes and are easy for infilitration, sources said.
