The last meeting of the military commanders from both sides to resolve the six month standoff was held at Chushul on November 6.

 

After all earlier rounds of talks ended up in deadlock with no sign of de-escalation at the Line of Actual Control, Indian and Chinese military commanders will meet for the 9th time tomorrow to deliberate on resolving the border dispute in eastern Ladakh. 

According to the official report, the talks would be held in Moldo opposite the Chushul sector in India.

The last round of Corps Commander-level talks between both countries was held on November 6 in Chushul in Eastern Ladakh.

India and China have been locked in a bitter standoff along the LAC for more than six months. 

While China began amassing massive military strength along the LAC, India responded with a befitting build-up.

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.
