New Delhi: India will hold a fresh round of senior commander-level military talks with China on June 6 to de-escalate ongoing border tension along the Line of Actual Control.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday confirmed that a meeting between senior Indian and Chinese military leaders has been scheduled for June 6.He said that the Chinese troops along the LAC were in sizeable numbers.
The Major General-level officers from India and China had already held a discussion to resolve border tension. The June 6 meeting will be held between Lt General-level officers from both sides.
Worthwhile to mention that the Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a nearly month-long high-altitude standoff in Eastern Ladakh.
Tension in the region started on May 5, when nearly 200 army personnel from India and China clashed along northern bank of the Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh.
Both sides have been engaged in eyeball to eyeball situation at two locations in the Galwan Valley, near Aksai Chin. Several rounds of talks between India, Chinese troops failed to ease tension.
