India and China to hold meeting on border issues
New Delhi, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) India and China will hold new talks on Sunday at the level of Corps commanders, this time on the Chinese side of the so-called Line of Actual Control, LAC, several media outlets in Delhi highlighted.
The military representatives of both countries will hold talks in the town of Moldo to discuss the withdrawal of the respective troops along the areas near the dividing line.

The two countries have been holding a series of talks since a skirmish that took place between Chinese and Indian troops in the Galwan Valley, Ladakh region on June 15th, the Hindustan Times newspaper recalled.

A mutual consensus to withdraw from all areas of friction was reached during an 11-hour meeting held in June between Chinese and Indian high command in Moldo.

The talks, which were led by Lt. Gen. Harinder Singh, commander of the XIV Corps, and Major-General Liu Lin, commander of the southern Xinjiang military region, aimed at easing tensions and military build-up on both sides of the border.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava acknowledged last week that some progress has been made towards withdrawal and de-escalation throughout the area, although the process is not yet complete.
