India, China to hold 9th Corps Commander-level talks today


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 today to deliberate on resolving the border dispute in eastern Ladakh. 


A Corps Commander level meeting will be held between India and China in Ladakh at 9:30 AM on Sunday.

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.

On August 29-30, India occupied heights along the northern and southern bank of the Pangong Lake which includes dominating positions overlooking the Chinese military deployed in that area.

The Chinese have been asking India to withdraw troops and tanks first from the southern bank but India has been asking for disengagement from all the friction points.

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.
