I would like to draw your attention to the Joint Press Release issued after the 7th round of the Senior Commanders talks held on 12 October. This is the second joint press release issued after the one issued after the previous round. As indicated in the Press Release, the talks were positive and constructive. The two sides have a better understanding of each other’s positions. Disengagement is a complex process that requires redeployment of troops by each side towards their regular posts on their respective sides of the LAC. To achieve this, the two sides will maintain the current momentum of communications based on the guidance of our leadership to not to turn differences into disputes and work towards a mutually acceptable solution for complete disengagement in all the friction areas along the Line of Actual Control and restoration of peace and tranquility in the India-China border areas.
