“There was a requirement of such a meeting to convey that relations between the two countries are not strained. The meetings took place at Chushul and DBO. The Indian side was represented by a Maj General and a Brigadier and the Chinese side was represented by a senior colonel— equivalent to a Brigadier,” said a Defence Ministry source.The source added that further meetings between the two sides are likely in near future.

The ongoing stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops began last week when Indian troops demolished a hut erected by soldiers of the Chinese Peoples’ Liberation Army 1.5 km inside the Indian side of LAC at Burtse—about 200 km north- east of Leh.

There is no commonly delineated LAC between India and China.
