Beijing: China on Wednesday said the fourth Commander-level talks between Indian and Chinese militaries to ease tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh have reached “progress” on promoting “further disengagement” of the border troops to de-escalate tensions.

When asked for an update on Tuesday’s military-level talks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told a media briefing here that both sides reached progress for promoting further disengagement of the border troops at the Western Sector.

“On July 14, border troops of China and India held the 4th round of Commander-level talks, building on the consensus of the previous three rounds and the implementation of relevant work has reached progress on promoting further disengagement between troops at the Western Sector of the boundary and de-escalating tensions,” she said.
