India and China have agreed to continue contacts and maintain peace in the border areas

Стакан

The agreement was reached during the 21st round of negotiations, which took place on February 19.

The negotiations took place at the Chushul-Moldo border post between the corps commanders of the two countries. The parties agreed to keep in touch in the future through appropriate military and diplomatic mechanisms, the Indian Foreign Ministry said. The countries also agreed to maintain peace and tranquility on the ground in the border areas.

The main topic of discussion was the issue of the complete separation of forces in all areas along the line of actual control in Eastern Ladakh. In May 2020, there were clashes that resulted in casualties on both sides. According to the Indian Foreign Ministry, the talks were held in a friendly and cordial atmosphere.

The lack of a demarcated border in the Himalayas is a source of tension in relations between China and India. The conflict has been going on since 1962, when about 38 thousand square kilometers belonging to India in mountainous areas came under Chinese control.
