Beijing: The 11th round of India-China military dialogue may take place on April 9 to resolve the friction at Gogra-Hot Springs and restoring the pre-April 2020 status quo ante along the 1,597-kilometre Line of Actual Control in East Ladakh, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
The Indian Army also wants to resolve long-standing patrolling issues at Depsang Bulge due to friction in the area during the 2013 stand-off with the Peoples Liberation Army.
The dialogue will most probably take place on Friday (April 9) but a confirmation is still awaited from the PLA side, said a senior official. He, however, insisted that there is no delay from the Chinese side.
The last round of military talks to resolve border tensions that began last May was held on February 20. This meeting stretched for 16 hours and ended with two sides agreeing that the Pangong Tso disengagement provided them with a good basis to resolve the outstanding issues at friction points in a steady and orderly manner.
