The third round of talks between India and China are in progress at Indian side of Moldo- Chushul border post.
In the talks on June 22, the two sides arrived at a "mutual consensus" to "disengage" from all the friction points in eastern Ladakh. Satellite pictures-not verified by the Indian government-show Chinese troops not only holding ground in Galwan Valley area but also shoring up their military positions with fortifications as well as making significant inroads into areas previously claimed and patrolled by India on the banks of the Pangong Tso.
The two sides had used nail-studded sticks, stones and rods, in accordance with the no-firearms policy at the LAC.
AIR correspondent reports, the Commander level talks between the Indian side led by GoC, Fire and Fury Lt Genl Harinder Singh and Peoples Liberation Army is led by South Xinjiang Military Division's Major General Lin Lui are continuing, since morning.
The Corps Commanders of the Indian and Chinese Armies are meeting on Tuesday for the third time in a new de-escalation bid along the worldwide border in Ladakh, which witnessed one of the bloodiest clashes between the troops on 15 June, in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed.
In a strongly-worded statement, the external affairs ministry last week held China responsible for the standoff saying it has has been amassing a large contingent of troops and armaments along the LAC since early May and that conduct of the Chinese forces is in complete disregard of all mutually agreed norms.
On Tuesday, both India and China are expected to deliberate on the implementation of an agreement arrived at the first round of the Lt General talks on 6 June, the sources said.
Tensions had escalated in eastern Ladakh after around 250 Chinese and Indian soldiers were engaged in a violent face-off on May 5 and 6.
Prior to the clashes, both sides had been asserting that pending the final resolution of the boundary issue, it was necessary to maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas.
