India-China Military level talks held on Saturday
India and China are taking all necessary steps required to resolve a month long standoff in 4 different regions of Ladakh.
On Saturday nearly 7 hours long meeting took place between the two armies that included lieutenant generals of both the armies locked in standoff that began with the confrontation between rival’s patrols near Pangong Lake on May 5.
From Indian side Lt General Harinder Singh, the Leh-based 14 Corps Commander, led a 10-member while the Chinese delegation was led by South Xinjiang Military District Commander Major General Liu Lin.
The discussion, said to have been held in a ‘cordial and positive atmosphere’, stretched well into the Saturday evening with both sides not only discussing the standoff points but also the friction caused by upgradation of border infrastructure on both sides.
“The direction of the military commander’s talks was positive and both sides showed the inclination to resolve…..so there were good signs,” said a senior official.
