According to the ANI, the government source stated, “The eighth round of talks are likely to be held this week for which the dates are being worked out between the two sides.”

For the eight round of talks, 14 Corps Commander Lieutenant General PGK Menon will be representing the Indian side, who recently took charge over Lt General Harinder Singh.
India and China have been on constant border disputes for over four months now, and India has preempted the Chinese and occupied dominating heights for both the south and north side of Pangong lake. China opposed the move though Indian Army was monitored under Line of Actual Control (LAC). Chinese side fire was observed in air at regions where Indian Army took up higher positions on strategic heights like Rezang La, Rechen La and many other hill features.
