New Delhi [India], June 8 (ANI): Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was briefed about the situation along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh sector on Monday by the Indian Army in a meeting attended by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) and the three services chiefs.
The Defence Minister was briefed on the heavy Chinese military buildup and the situation thereafter, and the talks between military commanders of the two countries in Moldo, sources said here.
The minister was also briefed that talks are going to continue with the Chinese to find a resolution at the earliest to the dispute where the People's Liberation Army has amassed over 5,000 troops along the LAC, they said.
In the ongoing dispute, the Chinese have done the build-up in the Galwan Valley, Finger and the Pangong Tso lake area.
