New Delhi: India and China will hold the 19th round of Corps Commander Level talks on Monday (August 14) at the Chushul-Moldo meeting point in the Eastern Ladakh sector to resolve the ongoing military standoff between the two countries for over three years, according to a media report. The two countries have been at odds for three years, since May 2020, when the Chinese attempted to aggressively alter the status quo along the Line of Actual Control.
As per reports from ANI, the Indian side is eager to resolve the dispute between the two countries after securing all its interests in the region. India has also deployed around 50,000 security personnel in the region to match the deployments made by the Chinese army in the areas of eastern Ladakh. Both sides have avoided a direct conflict even after being heavily deployed in the region.
As per reports from ANI “The Indian side would be led by Fire and Fury Corps Commander Lt Gen Rashim Bali for the talks with representatives of the Chinese military on Monday. Officials from the Ministry of External Affairs and ITBP are also expected to be part of the talks. The two sides are likely to discuss the issues related to DBO and CNN junction along with other matters. India would also be pressing for disengagement from the Eastern Ladakh.”
