India-China Commander talks last 13 hours; management must be informed

The sixth corps commanders-level meeting between India and China on the issue of the Ladakh stalemate ended on Monday evening after 13 hours of marathon talks. Indian representatives at the meeting are now expected to brief senior officials on discussions with the Chinese.

The head of 14 Corps, Lt. Gen. Harinder Singh and his likely successor, Lt. Gen. PGK Menon, along with a joint secretary from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had attended the meeting from the Indian side in Moldo, from the Chinese side in the real control line (LAC).

The meeting started around 10 a.m. Monday and continued until 11 p.m.

Corps commanders from both sides met after more than a month, as both sides had been engaged in at least three fire incidents that took place along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The corps commanders assembled at the Moldo hut opposite Chushul on the Indian side.

Prior to the meeting, the agenda and issues from the Indian side were discussed and finalized in a high-level meeting attended by National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, the Head of State -Major of Defense (CDS) General Bipin Rawat and Army Chief General Manoj Mukund.
