India and China are likely going to hold the 11th round of Corps Commander-level talks over the border faceoff across the LAC in Ladakh in the upcoming week, top government sources told India Today TV.
“The corps commander-level talks are likely to be held later this week following the diplomatic-level talks that were on March 12. The talks would aim at passing a resolution on the ongoing standoff at the Gogra heights, CNC junction and Depsang plains areas,” government sources said.
The two sides are likely to build up on the arrangements reached earlier on the disengagement from the Pangong lake area last month, they said.
Both sides are also likely to discuss a detailed plan about disengagement from the Depsang plains area where the Chinese have established more than 3,000 troops and heavy-armoured vehicles.
India and China last month successfully disengaged from the Pangong lake area by pulling back both men and machines from there.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) also said that India and China agreed that the agreement reached between the two foreign ministers in Moscow in September as well as their recent phone conversation in February should continue to guide the work of the two sides on the border standoff.
On February 11, India and China had held the 10th round of military talks with a focus on taking forward the disengagement process at friction points like Hot Springs, Gogra and Depsang in eastern Ladakh.
