New Delhi: Brigade Commander-level talks are underway between India and China to reduce tension on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. Today (Friday) at 11 am, the two sides once again met. For the past several days, the brigade commanders of the two countries have met and are negotiating to resolve the border dispute. However, this meeting was not held on Monday and Tuesday.
A source told Zion News affiliate channel WION that the purpose of the talks is to exchange views on daily activities so that no misunderstandings remain and the avenues of dialogue remain open. It is known that since the provocation of the Chinese army around Rejang La on LAC, both sides have been trying to control the situation.
Corps Commander talks 5 times
During the ground commanders’ talks earlier this week, the two sides agreed on a core commander-level dialogue. However, the date and time of this meeting have not been decided yet, it will be the 6th meeting since June. The Indo-China Lieutenant General-level or Corps Commander talks have been held five times so far – 6, 22 June, 30, 14 July, and 2 August.
Indian Occupation here
It is believed that after the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of India and China in Russia, the situation can improve. In these meetings, both countries have agreed on a five-point agenda to reduce tension. The southern part of Pangong Lake in Ladakh is now fully occupied by India. Indian soldiers are present on many hill peaks here. While China has captured Finger 4 to Finger 8 on the northern bank of Pangong Lake. The Chinese Army has been repeatedly asked by India to retreat and return to its LAC area.
