Nine Rounds Of Military Talks Held With China, Will Continue: S Jaishankar

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Saturday said senior military commanders of India and China have held nine rounds of talks on the process of disengagement of troops in eastern Ladakh and the parleys will continue in the future also.Addressing reporters in Vijayawada, he said so far there was no "visible expression" of the talks on the ground.

"The disengagement talks, because it is a very complicated issue, because it depends on troops, you have to know the geography (like) which position and what is happening, this is being done by the military commanders," he said.

He was replying to a query on whether there would be any ministerial-level talks between both the countries on skirmishes between troops of the Asian giants.China and India are locked in a military standoff in eastern Ladakh since May 5 last.
