Indo-China top-military commanders’ meet in Ladakh concludes

The top-level meeting between the military commanders of India and China was held, on Saturday, at Moldo on the Chinese side of Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The commanders met to discuss the ongoing dispute regarding the control of eight Finger regions or mountain spurs along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh. The meeting was originally scheduled to start at 8.30 am but was delayed by few hours.

The Indian delegation was led by the general officer commanding of Leh-based 14 Corps, Lieutenant General Harinder Singh while the Chinese commission was headed by Commander of Tibet Military District. 

Since the skirmishes between the troops of both nations took place on May 5 in the Pangong Lake region, multiple meetings and dialogue sessions have been held between the brass Army personnel to resolve the issue. But so far, they have not reached to an ‘agreed solution’.

On the contrary, several reports of intrusions by Chinese infantry soldiers have been reported in Demchok, the Galwan River basin and Gogra post as well. Also, increases Chinese activity has also been reported from the Daulat Beg Oldie area.

Tension escalated between the two armies as India has claimed that Chinese military is obstructing normal patrolling along the LAC in the Fingers area, while the Chinese troops have alleged trespassing in the Fingers area.
