Confidence-building measure

NEW DELHI: In a confidence-building measure, the Indian and the Chinese armies on Sunday activated a new hotline in the North Sikkim sector to facilitate their local commanders to speak directly and address any issue or differences on the ground along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), officials said.

The establishment of the hotline between the Indian Army in Kongra La in North Sikkim and China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) at Khamba Dzong in the Tibetan Autonomous Region came a day after the two armies held a nine-hour meeting with a focus on the disengagement process in remaining friction points in eastern Ladakh.

The Indian Army said the hotline has been established to further the spirit of trust and cordial relations along the borders. The setting up of the hotline coincided with PLA Day.

It said the inauguration of the new hotline was attended by ground commanders of the two armies and a message of friendship and harmony was exchanged through it.
