Top Army Officer To Lead Team To Beijing For Talks


A top Indian military commander is set to lead a delegation to China next month for talks to improve ties and control differences that can cause conflict along the 3,488-km Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto un-demarcated boundary that runs all along the Himalayan ridgeline.

This is the first such high-level military visit to Beijing, since December 2015, when the then Northern Army Commander, Lt Gen DS Hooda, had led a delegation. Also, it’s the first high-level military delegation since the 73-day standoff in Sikkim in June-August last year.

The Indian visit is being finalised for the middle of next month. Either the Eastern Army Commander or the Northern Army Commander shall lead the delegation, it is learnt. The move indicates a further thaw in India-China military relations that have been edgy, to say the least.

his will be a return visit to match the recent visit (July 2 to 6) by a 10-member Chinese delegation led by Lt Gen Liu Xiaowu, Deputy Commander of Western Theatre Command (that faces India).  Read More
