The meeting will be held between the two countries after the latest talks have ended without any progress. Discussions took place in October of last year.

At Wednesday’s meeting, there is a possibility of talks on disengaging the hot spring and other contested areas from the LAC adjacent to eastern Ladakh.

Lieutenant-General Sengupta will lead the Indian delegation. Lt Gen Sengupta, who succeeded Lt Gen PGK Menon as commander last week, was also present at the 13th meeting when Lt Gen Menon led the Indian side.

In the last three rounds of talks (i.e. 11th, 12th and 13th), there has been a disengagement in Finger Area, Kailash Hill Range and Gogra, but in Hot Spring, Demcok and Depsang Plain, the situation remained tense between the two parties.

The meeting also comes at a time when numerous propaganda videos have been shown from China on the occasion of the hoisting of the New Year’s flag in the Galwan Valley where it has reiterated not to part with its land.

For its part, India has also released photos of soldiers stationed at the Indian Army Observation Post in the Galwan Valley holding the national flag and reiterating their position.
