India, China agree to resolve outstanding issues

NEW DELHI, Apr 10:
India and China held detailed deliberations on disengagement in remaining areas of Eastern Ladakh and agreed to jointly maintain stability on the ground, avoid any new incidents and resolve the outstanding issues in an “expeditious manner”.
A day after the 11th round of military talks that lasted for 13 hours, the Indian Army today said it was highlighted during the parleys that completion of disengagement in other areas would pave the way for considering “de-escalation of forces” and ensure full restoration of peace and tranquillity in the region.
The Corps Commander-level talks took place at the Chushul border point on the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh. The parleys began at around 10:30 am and ended at 11:30 pm.
People familiar with the negotiations said the Indian delegation, led by Commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps Lt Gen PGK Menon, particularly insisted on resolving outstanding issues in Hot Springs, Gogra and Depsang.
“The two sides had a detailed exchange of views for the resolution of the remaining issues related to disengagement along the LAC in Eastern Ladakh,” the Army said in a statement. (PTI)
