New Delhi, November 17

India and China will hold a virtual meeting of the Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination (WMCC) on Thursday. The last meeting of military commanders on October 10 had ended in a stalemate.

The broad-based WMCC is led by senior diplomat Naveen Srivastava and includes personnel from the Army, Indo-Tibetan Border Police and the Ministries of Defence and Home. The Chinese also have an equally broad-based representation.

The discussions will include disengagement from Hot Springs and Depsang.

At the October 10 meeting, India had implied that the Chinese were not being accommodative. The Indian side made constructive

suggestions for resolving the remaining areas “but the Chinese side was not agreeable,” the MEA had then said.
