India and China to hold 12th round of military talks on Ladakh row tomorrow: Report

New Delhi/IBNS: Indian and Chinese commanders will meet for the 12th round of military talks in the Ladakh sector on Saturday in connection with border tensions that started nearly 14 months ago.

The talks will take place at Moldo on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC), at 10.30 am, said a Hindustan Times report citing a source.

Corps commander-ranked officers of the Indian Army and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will take part in the talks, it added.

The last military talks between India and China was held on April 9 when the Indian Army told the PLA that disengagement at all friction points on the disputed border was crucial for the de-escalation of the conflict.

“We are expecting forward movement in hammering out a disengagement agreement at Hot Springs and Gogra,” said a second official, asking not to be named, said the HT report.

The armies of both the countries started negotiations  to resolve the border row in eastern Ladakh on June 6, but so far they have only had limited success in hammering out an agreement for disengagement of rival soldiers at friction points.

Both armies have 50,000 to 60,000 troops each in the Ladakh theatre and the deployments haven’t thinned after the disengagement in the Pangong Tso sector.
