India and China are likely to hold the eighth round of Corps Commander talks this week for disengagement and de-escalation along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh.
“The eighth round of talks are likely to be held this week for which the dates are being worked out between the two sides. The final details would be known in a day or two,” senior government sources told IndiaToday.in.
In the eight-round of talks, the Indian side is likely to be headed by the new 14 Corps Commander Lt Gen PGK Menon who recently took over from Lt Gen Harinder Singh.
Lt Gen Harinder Singh has now been transferred out to the Indian Military Academy where he would be in charge of the future generations of Indian Army officers. After being in a standoff for more than four months, India pre-empted the Chinese and occupied dominating heights in both southern and northern banks of the Pangong lake.
The move was opposed by the Chinese even though the Indian Army was within its own side of the Line of Actual Control(LAC).
