India and China will hold the seventh round of Corps Commander-level talks to discuss de-escalation at the Line of Actual Control (LAC), at Chushul in Eastern Ladakh. The meeting will begin 12 noon onward.
The Indian side will be represented by Lt Gen Harinder Singh, who is ending his tenure as 14 Corps Commander, and his successor, Lt Gen P.G.K Menon. Joint Secretary from the Ministry of External Affairs, Navin Srivastava will also attend. All in all, it will be a 12-member team, also comprising ITBP IG Deepam Seth, Brig commanders and 2 Chinese interpreters.
Weather will now pose as a new challenge for the thousands of troops amassed by both sides in the region as temperatures at mountain peaks and passes along the disputed India-China border have dropped to minus 20 degrees celsius.
India and China had held the 6th round of Military Commander-Level meeting on September 21. There has been no breakthrough even as the two nations are involved in a standoff at the LAC for six months.
