8th round of India-China Corps Commander Level Meeting was held in Chushul on Friday. The two sides had a candid, in-depth and constructive exchange of views on disengagement along the Line of Actual Control in the Western Sector of India-China border areas.
The Defence Ministry said both sides agreed to earnestly implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, ensure their frontline troops to exercise restraint and avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation. The two sides also agreed to maintain dialogue and communication through military and diplomatic channels, and, taking forward the discussions at this meeting, push for the settlement of other outstanding issues, to jointly maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas. They also agreed to have another round of meetings soon.
After the Leh standoff lasted more than six months in eastern Ladakh, it seems India and China are close to a breakthrough over disengagement on the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Two sides include pulling back tanks and armoured vehicles from focal points.
