India and China are holding Lieutenant General-level talks on Saturday, 6 June, in a bid to de-escalate the tensions between the countries along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.

There have been a couple of fistfights, injured soldiers and an ongoing standoff between the Indian Army and People's Liberation Army at 14,000 feet at Galwan Valley in East Ladakh, over boundary differences.

The build up at the border has been triggered by what defence experts say is Chinese 'transgression' over the disputed border between the countries, with the PLA pitching tents, bringing troops over in thousands, while on the Indian side, anti-Chinese sentiments have flared up again on social media with a call to go swadeshi and boycott Chinese goods.
