New Delhi: The eleventh round of Corps Commanders-level talks between India and China are underway at Chushul border personnel meeting point on the Indian side in eastern Ladakh. 

After completion of first phase of disengagement process in north and south of Pangong Tso in the region, the two sides are discussing to disengage from other friction points, including Hot Springs, Gogra, Depsang and Demchok in the Ladakh region. 

A defence official said that the talks began at Chushul at around 11 am on Friday.

Both sides are attempting to end the border standoff which are on since May last year. 

“To reach a mutually acceptable solution for complete disengagement from all friction points at the earliest, India and China have agreed to continue their dialogue. This would enable two sides to look at broader de-escalation of troops in the area and work towards the restoration of peace and tranquillity in the border areas. They also agreed that in the interim two sides should continue to maintain stability at ground level and prevent any untoward incident,” the MEA had said earlier.

The last corps commander-level talks between the two countries were held in Moldo on the Chinese side. 

The Indian side is being led by Leh-based 14 Corps commander Lt Gen PGK Menon.
