Indian, Chinese militaries hold Brigade Commander-level talks in eastern Ladakh

Indian, Chinese militaries hold Brigade Commander-level talks in eastern Ladakh”

In the highest level face-to-face political contact between India and China since tensions first flared along the border in May, defense ministers Rajnath Singh of India and General Wei Fenghe of China met late on Friday on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting in Moscow. The news report also said that the cause and truth of current tension on the China-India border are very clear and the responsibility lies with the Indian side. "We have great support from India", he said.

The editorial warned if New Delhi wanted to label Beijing its "long-term strategic rival", then India would need to be "prepared to pay a huge cost". He also said the USA hoped for a peaceful resolution in the India-China border tensions.

The stand-off between the two Asian superpowers escalated in the eastern Ladakh region in April-May and peaked on June 15 when 20 Indian soldiers were martyred at the Galwan Valley. Despite ongoing engagements at diplomatic and military commander levels between the two, the People's Liberation Army made a second attempt to transgress territory, according to the Indian Defence Ministry. The armed forces blocked Chinese troops from carrying out what they said was "provocative military movements" in the region. On August 31, US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun asserted that China was "picking a fight right now on virtually every front" and was exploiting "every opportunity they can from technology theft to the assertion of national sovereignty over the territory and territorial waters of other countries".

Trump has offered to mediate between the two nuclear-armed nations in the past.

US President Donald Trump on Friday (local time) said that he believes the Indian-American community would vote for him in the upcoming presidential elections. "You have got a great leader and you have got a great person", said Donald Trump.

The Global Times concluded that China is "quite capable of handling challenges from India" stressing that the "Indian government has forgotten that its main task should be improving living standards".

Sources said the presence of Chinese infantry combat vehicles in close proximity to the border near Spanggur has been observed and fresh troops appear to have been deployed after India took control of strategic peaks and passes last week. "Despite the repeated incidents near Pangong Tso over the last few days and the visible erosion of trust, the saving grace is that public statements emanating from the two countries still seem to be prioritising peace over a war that would hurt both countries severely in critical spheres".

"The situation along the LAC is tense".
