The 11th round of Corps Commander-level meeting, which is due since the disengagement at Pangong Tso, is expected to be held in the upcoming week, reports India Today. Two sides will discuss the disengagement in the Gogra-Hotspring areas in eastern Ladakh. The two sides had agreed to continue their dialogue through diplomatic and military channels to “reach a mutually acceptable solution for complete disengagement from all friction points at the earliest” in the recently conducted Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination (WMCC) on border affairs meeting. Previously, senior military commanders from both sides met on February 22 for the 10th round of talks after the Pangong disengagement.
