New Delhi/UNI: In order to resolve the ongoing border standoff in Eastern Ladakh, India and China have agreed to stop sending more troops to the frontline and refrain from unilaterally changing the situation on the ground.

The Corps Commanders of India and China held their sixth round of meeting at Moldo on the Chinese side on Monday, which lasted for 14 hours. They Corps Commanders had in-depth exchanges of views on stabilising the situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the India-China border areas.

A joint statement issued on Tuesday said the two countries agreed to earnestly implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, strengthen communication on the ground, avoid misunderstandings and misjudgments, stop sending more troops to the frontline, refrain from unilaterally changing the situation on the ground, and avoid taking any actions that may complicate the situation.

The two sides also agreed to hold the seventh round of Military Commander-Level Meeting as soon as possible, take practical measures to properly solve problems on the ground, and jointly safeguard peace and tranquility in the border area, the statement added.

Monday's meeting was the first, since the Foreign Ministers of the two countries agreed on a five-point roadmap, to take forward the disengagement and de-escalation process.

The five-point plan was discussed, when External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi met on the margins of a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) meet in Moscow, earlier this month.
