The situation along India’s borders with China is under control, Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane said on Saturday. Naravane said that a series of high-level delegation talks that started with the Chinese side last week has been followed up with meetings at the local level between the commanders of equivalent ranks.

Chief Naravane said that through the continued dialogue all perceived differences between India and China will be set to rest.

“We are hopeful that through the continued dialogue we’re having, all perceived differences that we (India and China) have will be set to rest. Everything is under control,” he said.

This comes a day after Indian and Chinese army delegations, led by major general-ranked officers, on Friday held discussions in eastern Ladakh again to resolve the standoff between border troops. This was the fifth meeting between the two major generals to break the stalemate that began with a violent confrontation between rival patrols near Pangong Tso on the night of May 5-6.

Friday’s meeting between major general Abhijit Bapat, commander of the Karu-based HQs 3 Infantry Division, and his Chinese counterpart went on for nearly five hours, said one of the officers cited above.
