INDIA-CHINA HELD DIPLOMATIC TALKS

On Wednesday, China said that maintaining peace & tranquility along the indo-china border is something that both the countries require and it can only be achieved in joint efforts. The Chinese foreign and the defense minister took Beijing's stand and mentioned that India was responsible for the June 15 violent face-off in eastern Ladakh.

In a Chinese press conference, Defence Ministry Spokesman Col Wu Qian said that the two defense ministers are negotiating on the phone.
“The two sides held a second military-level meeting on June 22 to exchange in-depth views on controlling tensions and maintaining peace and stability in the border areas,” he said.
Reports reveal that in the capital city of India when the officials were asked about the conversation between the two defense ministers they said it was “not correct”.

“China and India are important neighbors to each other. Maintaining a peaceful and tranquil border region is in the common interests of both sides and requires common efforts as well. We hope that India will work with China, follow faithfully the important consensus reached between the two leaders, abide by the agreements reached between the two governments, and properly handle relevant issues through dialogue and negotiation on various levels. The two sides should make great efforts to jointly ease the current border situation and uphold peace and stability in the border areas. The two sides will stick to the Commander level meeting consensus and cool down the situations as soon as possible. The two sides will also try to maintain peace and tranquility of the border areas, following the agreement reached so far," Wu said.

Zhao said that the second round of Commander level meetings was held on June 22 and 23 during which the "two sides agreed to take measures to de-escalate the situation and jointly promote peace and tranquility."
Zhao again accused India of "provoking" a border clash, saying "the onus is not on China's part."
“This risky behavior by the Indian side greatly violated the agreement between the two countries and the basic norms guiding international relations. It's very serious, with very severe consequences,” he said.

Asked why after a positive meeting between the Commanders of the two armed forces, he is repeating the allegations, Zhao said, "what I have just said is meant to clarify the whole situation, tell the truth to everyone. We made this statement because the MEA in India and also Indian media have made some false reports."

The Indian and Chinese armies are engaged in the standoff in Pangong Tso, Galway Valley, Demchok, and Daulat Beg Oldie in eastern Ladakh. A sizable number of Chinese Army personnel even transgressed into the Indian side of the de-facto border in several areas including Pangong Tso.

The Indian Army has been objecting to the transgressions and demanded their immediate withdrawal for the restoration of peace and tranquility in the area. Both sides held a series of talks in the last few days to resolve the border row.
