Lieutenant General Harinder Singh is the commander of the 14th Corps based at Leh who will represent the Indian Army in talks with Chinese officials. Nicknamed ‘Fire and Fury Corps’, the 14th Corps is part of the Indian Army’s Northern Command at Udhampur. This command faces the most risky challenges. Lieutenant General Harinder Singh is considered an anti-terrorism expert commander. He took command of the 14th Corps in October last year. He has held several important positions in the Indian Army.
The issue was not resolved in several rounds of talks
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 has not yet ended. China has deployed five thousand soldiers of its army in the northern Ladakh sector after conducting military exercises in Tibet. In response, the Indian Army has also increased its deployment.
