India-China 7th round of Corps Commander-level talks: All you need to know

India and China are holding the 7th round of Corps Commander-level talks to reduce tension along the LAC that has been festering since May 2020.

The Indian side has been demanding comprehensive disengagement at all flashpoints and restoration of status quo ante of early April, 2020.

China on the other hand wants India to withdraw from all strategic heights on the southern bank of Pangong Tso.

Indian forces had taken an aggressive stand and occupied several strategic heights on the southern and northern Pangong lake area preempting Chinese attempts to take them over.

After the 6th round of talks, the two sides released a joint statement agreeing not to send any more troops to the frontline.

The seventh round of talks would be the last one to be attended by present corps commander of Fire and Fury Corps Lt Gen Harinder Singh.

The two sides have been engaged in a tiff along the LAC with China attempting to change the status-quo several times.

A violent faceoff also took place between the two sides in the Galwan valley on 15th of June, 2020.
