Colonel Long Shaohua, spokesperson for China’s PLA Western Theater Command, has made a statement on the 13th round of the corps commander-level talks between China and India.
The talks were held on Sunday, October 10th, on the Chinese side of the Moldo-Chushul border meeting point.
Long points out that during the talks, China has made great efforts to promote the easing and cooling of the border situation and fully demonstrated its sincerity in order to maintain the overall situation of the relations between the two militaries. However, India still insisted on the unreasonable and unrealistic demands, which made the negotiations more difficult.
China’s resolve to safeguard national sovereignty is firm. China hopes the Indian side will not misjudge the situation, cherish the hard-won situation in the China-India border areas, abide by relevant agreements and consensus between the two countries and the two militaries, show sincerity and take actions, and work with China to jointly safeguard peace and stability in the border areas.
