New Delhi: Locked in a fierce border row for over 14 months and having seen bloodshed on both sides during the Galwan conflict, India and China have agreed to resolve issues in an "expeditious manner" as per existing agreements and protocols.

 

A Joint Press Release issued on the 12th round of the India-China Corps Commander Level Meeting said, "The two sides noted that this round of meeting was constructive, which further enhanced mutual understanding."

 

The 12th round of crucial military commanders meet to resolve the India-China border dispute was held on Saturday (July 31) in the Ladakh sector on the Chushul-Moldo Border.

 

"The two sides had a candid and in-depth exchange of views on resolution of remaining areas related to disengagement along the Line of Actual Control in the Western Sector of India-China border areas. The two sides also agreed that in the interim they will continue their effective efforts in ensuring stability along the LAC in the Western Sector and jointly maintain peace and tranquility," the release said.

 

Earlier on Saturday, sources said during the meeting India categorically pressed for an early disengagement of troops and weapons in Hot Springs and Gogra points.

 

 

The meeting lasted for around nine hours.

 

Both sides discussed specific details to cool tempers in the remaining friction points.

 

The Indian delegation was led by Lt Gen PGK Menon, commander of XIV Corps, ensuring security for the LAC with eastern Ladakh. While Maj Gen Liu Lin, commander of the South Xinjiang Military District, led the Chinese side.

 

They agreed to resolve these remaining issues in an "expeditious manner" as per the existing agreements and protocols and maintain the "momentum of dialogue and negotiations", the statement said.

 

The latest round of talks was held following the meeting of the Indian and Chinese foreign ministers on July 14, at Tajikistan capital in Dushanbe.

 

Sources also said India is looking forward to "positive outcomes" in the dialogue in the future.

 

In the candid discussions at Dushanbe, Dr Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi reached a broad understanding that both sides will continue to "ensure stability on the ground and neither side will take any unilateral action that could increase tension."

 

Dr Jaishankar also pointed out to the Chinese State Councilor that the "successful disengagement" in the Pangong Lake Area had created conditions for resolving the remaining issues earlier this year.

 

They also agreed that the two sides should discuss all the remaining issues and seek a "mutually acceptable solution."
