Chinese Defense Minister holds talks with Rajnath Singh for 2.20 hours

Moscow: Negotiations between Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and China's Defense Minister Wei Fengahi have ended amid heightened tension on the border in eastern Ladakh. This conversation between the two continued for 2 hours and 20 minutes. Talks began at 9:30 pm (Indian time) in a prominent hotel in Moscow, the capital of Russia. The Indian delegation also included Defense Secretary Ajay Kumar and India's Ambassador to Russia DB Venkatesh Verma. According to sources, talks between Rajnath and the Chinese Defense Minister remained focused on finding a middle ground to reduce tension in eastern Ladakh. During this time, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh explicitly told his Chinese counterpart General Wei Fenghe to establish the situation before the deadlock in East Ladakh.

Apart from this, he clearly said that "China will have to withdraw the army for peace'. This was the first high-level face-to-face meeting on both sides since the border tension in East Ladakh in May. However, earlier, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval had a telephonic conversation with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to resolve the deadlock. Rajnath Singh's office tweeted, "The meeting ended in Moscow between Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Chinese Defense Minister General Wei Fengahi. This meeting lasted for two hours and 20 minutes".

According to sources, "The Indian delegation strongly objected to the Chinese army's new efforts to change the status quo along the south bank of Pangong Lake and insisted on resolving the deadlock through talks. A source associated with the matter said, "The centre of the conversation between the two defence ministers was to resolve the long-standing border impasse."
