The 14th round of India-China military dialogue took place on Wednesday and lasted for 13 hours long at the Chushul-Moldo meeting point. The talks took place at the Chushul-Moldo border point on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh and ended at 10.30 pm.

As per reports, the centre of the meeting was to carry forward the disengagement process at Hot Springs (Patrolling Point 15).

Lt Gen Anindya Sengupta represented Indian delegation for talks and Chinese team was to be headed by South Xinjiang Military District Chief Maj Gen Yang Lin. 

India stressed upon an early disengagement of troops in the remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh at the meeting. The Indian side also insisted on disengagement as soon as possible in all the remaining friction points including resolution of issues in Depsang Bulge and Demchok, reportedly.

Meeting did not reach to a constructive solution but both countries decide to work towards mutually acceptable solutions to resolving the Ladakh LAC stand-off. The Indian Army also raised the issue of PLA building a bridge over Pangong Tso, east of Srijap Complex, for faster troop deployment and rapid militarisation of the occupied Aksai Chin area by the Chinese Army all along the 597-km Ladakh LAC.

In their virtual diplomatic talks on November 18, India and China agreed to hold the 14th round of military talks at an early date to achieve the objective of complete disengagement in remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh.

The 13th round of talks had taken place on October 10.
