Both countries will further carry out talks. On September 21, the Indian and Chinese Senior Commanders held the 6th round of the Military Commander-Level Meeting.

“The two sides had candid and in-depth exchanges of views on stabilizing the situation along the LAC,” the Indian Army said.

“They agreed to strengthen communication on the ground, avoid misunderstandings and misjudgments, stop sending more troops to the frontline, refrain from unilaterally changing the situation on the ground, and avoid taking any actions that may complicate the situation.”

This time both countries’ delegation had respective foreign ministry representatives. The Indian delegation had two Lieutenant Generals, two Major Generals, and a Joint Secretary from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).

Headed by Lt Gen Harinder Singh, Commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps, the delegation had Lt Gen PGK Menon from Army headquarter in Delhi. Menon will take over as Commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps in November.
