No Breakthrough at LAC: India, China Agree to Maintain Peace, But Friction Points Linger

New Delhi: India and China recently engaged in high-level military talks aimed at maintaining “peace and tranquillity” along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. Despite the discussions held earlier this week, there hasn’t been significant progress in resolving the longstanding border tensions that have persisted for over three and a half years.

The 21st round of talks between Indian and Chinese corps commanders took place on February 19 at the Chushul-Moldo border meeting point, as confirmed by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA). According to a statement released by the MEA, the discussions centred on achieving complete disengagement in the remaining friction points along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh, with the aim of restoring peace and tranquillity in the border areas shared by the two nations.

Both sides exchanged their viewpoints during the talks, which were described as being conducted in a friendly and cordial atmosphere. The MEA emphasized that India and China have agreed to maintain open communication through relevant military and diplomatic channels to address the ongoing situation. Additionally, both parties have committed to upholding peace and tranquillity on the ground in the border areas during this interim period.
