Next round of China-India military talks will be held soon


In the reply of a question about the next round of China-India military talks, Indian External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said there was a commitment by both sides at the last diplomatic dialogue to hold the Corps Commander level talks at an early date.

“I think there was a commitment on both sides to have the next round of commander level talks at an early date in the last WMCC that took place physically in Beijing. I do not have a date to share with you yet,” he said.

The Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination (WMCC) on India-China Border Affairs had taken place three weeks back in Beijing.

In the meeting, the two sides discussed proposals for disengagement in the remaining friction points along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh in an “open and constructive manner”.

Following the meeting, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said the two sides agreed to hold the 18th round of military talks at an early date to achieve the objective in accordance with the existing bilateral agreements and protocols.
