- Core Commander level talks between India and China
- Steps taken to reduce stress will be discussed
- India demands that the situation before May 2 be restored on the outskirts
Today, once again the Corps Commander level talks are going to take place between India and China. In eastern Ladakh, efforts are underway to resolve the situation between the forces of the two countries. Taking a strong stand, the Indian Army has demanded in earlier meetings that the situation before May 2 be restored on the outskirts. Just before the meeting to be held today, Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, commander of the Fourteenth Corps of the Indian Army at Leh, will have a separate meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Tibet Military District Commander Liu Lin. In which the issues of conversation to be held in a point-wise manner will be decided.
In today's meeting, on 22 June, the points of the second round of the Corps Commander level will be reviewed. Earlier, the first two meetings of the Commander level took place on June 6 and 22, in front of Chushul, in Moldo, China. In today's meeting, the two sides will inform each other about the steps taken by them. After this, there will be discussion about the tension created in those places of LAC where there is a dispute and deadlock on both sides.
It is being told that China had not complied with the agreed issues in the first talks at the Corps Commander level on June 6, which India is emphasizing. Due to the reversal of the agreement, there was a bloody conflict between the two armies in the Galvan Valley on 15 June. In this, 20 soldiers of India sacrificed themselves while protecting the border. At the same time 45 Chinese soldiers were killed.
Even after the second round of commander level talks, the Ministry of External Affairs had also made it clear that the June 6 talks would be implemented to reduce tension on the LAC. India has given a sharp message to China that India will not accept its trick to redefine LAC in eastern Ladakh with the help of army mob. Today, India will continue to maintain the position that the situation before May is restored on both sides of the LAC to reduce military tensions. Significantly, even after the second round of talks, in eastern Ladakh, China has not taken any concrete steps for the withdrawal of forces.
