NEW DELHI: India on Thursday said that ensuring a comprehensive disengagement of troops in all the friction areas in eastern Ladakh is the “immediate task”, remarks that came ahead of another round of military talks with China on the border standoff.
Though the date for the eighth round of military talks is yet to be firmed up, it is expected to take place by the first half of next week.
“The immediate task is to ensure a comprehensive disengagement of troops in all the friction areas,” said the spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs(MEA) Anurag Srivastava.
He was replying to questions at a media briefing on the status of talks between India and China on the over five-month-long standoff along the Line of Actual Control(LAC) in eastern Ladakh. (AGENCIES)
