The 19th meeting of the Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination on India-China Border Affairs (WMCC) held “frank and detailed discussions” on the developments since its last meeting on August 20.
In the Chinese Ambassador’s address, there was no trace of the rancour expressed by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) just a day ago.
China is committed to seeking a solution through dialogue, said the Chinese envoy. “We need to remain rational and calm, and resist the talk of confrontation,” he said during a virtual meeting to commemorate China’s 71st national day. The MEA said the WMCC also underlined the importance it attached to the discussions earlier this month between the two Defence Ministers followed by an agreement between the two Foreign Ministers to ensure disengagement at all friction points. The meeting also decided to hold the seventh round of commanders’meet at an early date. — TNS
