8th Corps Commander level meeting between India and China is expected to take place next week, possibly on 19 October, to find a solution to the 5-month border standoff in Ladakh. Earlier on 12 October, the 7th Corps Commander level meeting took place between both the Nations for 11 long hours in Chushul.

In the 7th corps meeting India had gone with the aim of complete disagreement of troops by China from all the points in Ladakh. After the meet, both the armies had issued a statement for a ‘mutually acceptable solution for disengagement as early as possible’. A proposal was given by Republic of China during the 7th corps meeting that was discussed at the China Study Group (CSG). Both the Nations are in border standoff since April and after several rounds of talks, the tension between the Nations have not yet scaled down. On the contrary, both the Nations have deployed troops along LAC in Ladakh, the main friction point.

Armies of both India and China look ready to face the extreme winter chills but not move from their stands. The standoff had started after China Crossed LAC and entered the Indian Territory, Ladakh. China had claimed that the territory of Ladakh falls under the territory of China. China has asserted that it recognises the 1959 LAC, which is not at all acceptable to India.
