Armies of India, China to hold Corps Commander-level talks at Moldo today


Armies of India and China will hold Corps Commander-level talks at Moldo on the Chinese side of Line of Actual Control today, said Indian Army sources.


As per the report, the meeting is scheduled to start at 11 AM today.

"India side will focus on complete disengagement by China in the Finger area," the sources said.

On Thursday, India said that some progress has been made in the disengagement of troops along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh but it has not yet been completed. It expected that the Chinese side will sincerely work for complete disengagement and de-escalation, full restoration of peace and tranquillity in the border areas at the earliest. 

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said that the two sides held the 17th meeting of the Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination last week and reviewed the situation in the India-China border areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Western sector.

Indian and Chinese troops are engaged in a standoff along the Line of Actual Control since May. 

The tensions between the two neighbouring countries along the border escalated on June 15 face-off in Galwan valley leading to casualties on both sides.

20 Indian Army personnel, including the commanding officer of 16 Bihar regiment Colonel Santosh Babu lost his life at the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on June 15-16 night after a more than three-hour-long fight. 

India and China have held multiple rounds of military and diplomatic talks to resolve the matter.
