Peace initiatives: India, China plan additional border meeting point along LAC

India and China have agreed for additional border meeting points in the Ladakh region along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in what is touted as a major confidence building measure (CBM).

The decision to establish one more border meeting point (BMP) in Ladakh comes in the wake of plans to strengthen peace mechanism by the militaries of the two countries along the LAC, following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to China.

According to sources, the meeting point will be close to the Depsang plains in Northern Ladakh.

The move is aimed at resolving local border issues in the face of growing transgressions along the 800-km Ladakh border.

“The idea is to deal with transgression issue at the ground level locally,” a source told ET saying the move would ensure regular meetings between the militaries of the two countries.

In April 2013, a major three-week face-off ensued between the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army.

The stand-off was followed by a similar transgression in Chumar when Chinese President Xi Jinping visited India last September.
