LAC Standoff: India, China To Hold Military Talks Today
New Delhi: Indian and Chinese military officials are set to hold high level talks on Saturday amid the month-long standoff between the two countries over the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
The dialogue comes a day after the foreign ministry officials of both nations discussed the flaring of tensions on the disputed Himalayan border on Friday.
The talks have been requested by India and will be held at the Indian Border Point Meeting hut in Chushul-Moldo.
India will be led by Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, Commander of 14 Corps, while the Chinese side will be headed by the Commander of the Tibet Military District.
The Indian delegation will press for restoration of the previously existing state of affairs in all areas of eastern Ladakh, oppose the huge build-up of Chinese troops in the region and ask Beijing not to oppose infrastructure development by India on its side of the de-facto border, news agency PTI quoted unnamed officials as saying.
