India, China likely to hold another round of military talks this week

Both India and China are likely to hold further military talks in the upcoming days to discuss specific disengagement proposals in eastern Ladakh where their two armies are in a standoff for over six-month.

The eighth round of Corps Commander-level talks on Friday had broadly discussed disengagement of troops from specific friction points and both sides would like to take forward the “constructive” dialogue to the next round with detailed deliberations, sources told PTI on Sunday.

“Another round of talks is likely this week to discuss the proposals,” said a source. The next round of talks will also be at the level of Corps Commanders.

In a joint statement released earlier on Sunday, the Indian Army and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army(PLA) described Friday talks as candid, in-depth and constructive.

The talks, which lasted for nearly 11 hours, were held on the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Chushul at eastern Ladakh.
