Major General Liu Lin was leading on behalf of China. The meeting lasted from 11:30 in the morning to 5 in the evening in Moldo, China.

Many rounds have been held
Till now, up to 10 rounds of talks have been held between the two armies over the ongoing deadlock in eastern Ladakh. On 2 June, there was a discussion on this issue between the officers of both the armies, but so far no specific result of any conversation has been revealed. However, in the meantime the two armies in that area have retreated some distance. The conflict is still not over. China has deployed five thousand soldiers of its army in the northern Ladakh sector, conducting military exercises in Tibet. In response, the Indian Army has also increased its deployment.
This is the dispute
China has retained its hold over the Galvan River region of Ladakh. The region was also a major cause of the 1962 war. Several rounds of ground level negotiations have failed. The army has been asked to follow the standing orders. This means that the army cannot use force to expel intruders from the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Explain that India shares a 3,488 km border with China. This border passes through Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. It is divided into three sectors. Western Sector i.e. Jammu and Kashmir, Middle Sector i.e. Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand and Eastern Sector i.e. Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.
