  • India and China find middle ground on not sending troops to frontline of border

Some good news on the India and China border front both nations have agreed not to further deepen tensions with the border situation through a series of measures, which involves not sending more troops to forward areas, but a tangible breakthrough on de-escalating escapive marathon military commander-level talks held on Monday.

According to sources, the meeting on Monday, between the delegations led by 14 Corps commander Lt-General Harinder Singh and South Xinjiang Military District chief Major General Liu Lin, did not lead to any progression in defusing the almost five-month long troop confrontation. 

The heightened levels of tensions are seen as unheard in recent times. A violent clash between the two countries on 15 June, left 20 dead on the Indian side and unknown number of Chinese casualties.

The commander level talks came after a meeting on 10 September between the foreign ministers of India and China in Moscow. That resulted in a temporary truce that still holds though the tens of thousands of soldiers are positioned in rows against each other with tanks, missiles and air support. At some points, the troops are less than a kilometre apart.

At the talks, the Indian delegation conveyed its position that the onus was on China to move back from the positions it was occupying. The agenda for the meeting was to figure out a specific timeline for the implementation of the five-point agreement reached between India and China on 10 September when foreign ministers of India and China -- S Jaishankar and Wang Yi – met in Moscow.

India also insisted on a time-bound implementation of the agreement finalised the talks between India’s S Jaishankar and China’s Wang Yi in Moscow.
