LAC Standoff: Reached Positive Consensus With India, Says China On Border Tension
Beijing: Without giving specific information on disengagement of border troops along the line of actual control (LAC) with India in eastern Ladakh, China said on Wednesday that both sides were trying to “ease the situation” following dialogue between diplomats and military officers.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said in Beijing that the Indian and Chinese armies had undertaken a “limited disengagement” to show intent to end the month-long border standoff ahead of the next round of military talks.
Hua added that both sides are taking steps to ease the situation along the border.
“Recently the diplomatic and military channels of China and India held effective communication on the situation along the border and reached positive consensus,” she said. “The two sides are following this consensus to take actions to ease the situation along the borders.”
