India-China standoff LIVE: Pullback under way but ties take huge beating
New Delhi, July 07: A detailed two-hour discussion at the level of 'special representatives' between NSA Ajit Doval and Chinese state councillor Wang Yi saw finalisation of the elements of disengagement and de-escalation in eastern Ladakh and along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) that began to play out on the ground on Monday.
In similar statements, India and China essentially reaffirmed that the disengagement agreed to in three rounds of talks between military commanders, as well as the June 17 conversation between foreign minister S Jaishankar and Wang, will be implemented.
