After an interval of about 2.5 months, the Indian and Chinese armies held the ninth round of Corps Commander level talks on Sunday. The aim of the talks was to move ahead with the process of withdrawing troops from all confrontational locations in eastern Ladakh. The marathon meeting that started at 11 AM in Moldo on Sunday, located on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, ended at 2.30 AM on Monday. In the meeting, India reiterated that China should completely disengage from the conflicted region. Earlier, in the eighth round of talks that was held on November 6, the two sides discussed extensively on the withdrawal of troops from specific areas of conflict. The Indian delegation was led by Lieutenant General PGK Menon, the commander of the 14th Corps at Leh.
