NEW DELHI: Stepping up top-level military contacts with China after the Doklam crisis, India will be sending a small military delegation led by Eastern Army Command chief Lt-General Abhay Krishna to the country next month to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral confidence building measures (CBM) along the Line of Actual Control.

The visit in mid-August comes soon after a 10-member People’s Liberation Army, led by the deputy chief of its Western Theatre Command Lt-General Liu Xiaowu, visited India earlier this month, even as the two armies prepare to resume their annual bilateral “Hand-in-Hand” combat exercise to be held in China, as well as establish a hotline between their top commanders later this year.

The reciprocal visits are the first such top-level engagements after the troop disengagement from the 73-day face-off site at Doklam on August 28 last year. After PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s informal summit at Wuhan in April, which led to “strategic guidance” to their militaries to manage and defuse troop confrontations during patrolling, heightened border tensions along the LAC have somewhat reduced now, as reported by TOI earlier.
