India and China will hold the ninth round of Corps Commander level military talks on Sunday to address the ongoing military standoff in Eastern Ladakh.

A media report quoted Indian Army officials as saying that the talks would be held in Moldo opposite the Chushul sector in India.

The last round of Corps Commander-level talks between India and China was held on November 6 at Chushul in Eastern Ladakh.

The standoff between the two neighbouring countries along the LAC continues for more than six months.

A representative of the ministry of external affairs is likely to be part of the dialogue.

The eight-round of dialogue took place on November 6, 2020.

Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane, earlier this month, said the force is ready for a long haul along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The Army Chief hoped for an amicable solution in its nine-month-long conflict with the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

“We are prepared to hold our ground where we are for as long as it takes to achieve our national goals and interest,” General Navarane had said.
