India, China to hold ninth round of talks amid LAC standoff

New Delhi/IBNS: India and China will meet for the ninth time for talks to defuse tension along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh and end the standoff. 

The talks will be held at Moldo, opposite Chushul sector in India.

In the last round of talks, the Indian Army had insisted on an early disengagement of troops by China from all points of conflict in eastern Ladakh.

The nearly nine-month-long military standoff has seen tension rise along the LAC.

Some 50,000 Indian Army troops are currently deployed in the mountainous locations in eastern Ladakh in sub-zero conditions.

So far the multiple rounds of talks between the two sides have failed to resolve the standoff.

China has deployed an equal number of troops, officials said.
