(Milcah Anila, Intern Journalist) Ladakh: The eighth round of talks between Indian and Chinese forces began on Friday as tensions along the border continued. Moldo border staff in Chushul are taking place at the meeting point.

The stalemate between India and China at eastern Ladakh on the border continues. Recently, the corps commander level officials of the two countries met once again. The eighth India-China Corps Commander level talks at Chushul along the Line of Control began at 9.30 am on Friday. Tensions have been high for six months since Chinese troops invaded Indian territory in the first week of May this year.

On June 15, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a clash with Chinese troops at Galvan Valley. China has also suffered heavy casualties, but the country has not made any official statements. It is noteworthy that this is the first time that talks have taken place between the two countries before the event. Meanwhile, Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday reiterated that there was no compromise on the country’s sovereignty and integrity.

There are signs that China is also trying to compromise. Last week, the Chinese Foreign Minister said that the current situation on the border was stable and that the two countries were trying to find a solution through talks and consultations. Despite India’s repeated warnings to withdraw from the disputed areas, the Chinese military has not given up on expansionism.

India has made it clear that the status quo in the Galway Valley, Pangong Lake, and other areas must be restored and Chinese forces must withdraw. During the June 22 talks, India stressed the need to abide by the understanding reached between the two countries.
