India, China hold 14th round of military talks to resolve eastern Ladakh standoff

India and China are holding another round of high-level military talks to resolve the 20-month-long military standoff in the remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh, sources in the security establishment said.

The Indian side is looking forward to constructive dialogue to resolve the friction points in eastern Ladakh.

The 13th round of talks had taken place on October 10. But nothing could be achieved in that meeting as China did not agree to suggestions made by India.

The eastern Ladakh border standoff between the Indian and Chinese militaries erupted on May 5, 2020, following a violent clash in the Pangong lake areas.

Both sides gradually enhanced their deployment by rushing in tens of thousands of soldiers along with heavy weaponry.
