“During the talks to be held at Moldo in Chinese territory opposite Chushul in Ladakh, 14 Corps Commander Lieutenant General Harinder Singh will hold discussions with MajGen Liu Lin, who is the commander of the South Xinjiang Military Region of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army,” said the Indian Army sources. The two sides have held close to a dozen rounds of talks since the first week of May when the Chinese sent over 5,000 troops to the LAC.

In the last few days, there has not been any major movement of the People’s Liberation Army troops at the multiple sites where it has stationed itself along the LAC opposite Indian forces.
