New Delhi, June 10

India on Thursday asked China to allow Indian citizens to travel to that country, mainly those who work or study there and said essential two-way travel should be facilitated, especially keeping in view the fact that Chinese nationals are able to travel to India.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) also said it was in touch with the Chinese side to seek an early resumption of travel by Indian citizens to China.

Meanwhile, India has yet again maintained that complete dis-engagement and de-escalation along all areas of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China will ensure full restoration of peace and tranquility and “enable progress in bilateral relations”.

Arindam Bagchi, spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, said the 11th India-China Corps commander-level meeting was held on April 9. Both sides should stick to the agreement on the need to resolve the outstanding issues in an expeditious manner, he said. — TNS
