A meeting of the Corps Commanders of Indian and Chinese Armies has started in Chushul to resolve the ongoing dispute over Chinese aggression along the Line of Actual Control in the Eastern Ladakh area, news agency ANI reported.
This is the third such meeting between XIV Corps Commander Lt General Harinder Singh and South Xinjiang Military Region Commander Major General Liu Lin after the deadly Galwan clashes earlier this month. The first two rounds of the talks aimed at easing tensions were held in Moldo on the Chinese side.
India-China border tensions
Tensions between India and China escalated after the violent clash between the Indian Army and Chinese PLA soldiers at the Galwan Valley earlier this month. In the deadly clashes, at least 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives, including a Colonel rank officer, and over 70 sustained injuries.
The Chinese Army also suffered casualties but didn't reveal the exact numbers. However, some reports claimed that over 40 Chinese soldiers were either died or injured in the clashes.
Following the melee, India and China have held two rounds of Corp Commander level meeting to defuse the tensions. Both India and China have been accusing each other of intrusion into their side of the LAC.
According to the Indian media reports, the Chinese had tried to put up their tents across the Indian side of the LAC in Galwan, which led to physical clashes. The Chinese have also reportedly set up tents inside the Indian territory in Pangong Tso lake areas.
