Media reports stated that some of the topics covered in the Major General-level talks between India and China at Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO) and Chushul included mutually agreeing that no new posts are built in close proximity to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh and specifying specific limits of patrolling.

The discussions also included not increasing troops by both countries along the LAC.
Sources said that both the countries have agreed to refrain from violating any airspace by drones, defining 'boundaries' of patrolling, exchanging prior information about each other's patrols, strictly following border protocols and where troops from both sides have been reduced since maintaining the integrity of such buffer zones.

The Chushul-Moldo border crossing on the Indian side of the LAC was the location of the meeting between India and China. The military of both nations have left the northern and southern flanks of the Pangong Tso, Gogra, and Hot Springs region since the border standoff began in May 2020, but tensions still exist in the Depsang plains and Demchok region.

In regards to Depsang and Demchok, neither party has made any notable advancements. The Indian side is trying to find a solution to the boundary disputes at CNN Junction and Depsang Point.

The talks were held to resolve the standoff in eastern Ladakh, in which India was represented by Major General PK Mishra and Major General Hariharan. The talks were held to resolve the ongoing deadlock in Ladakh's Depsang ground and Demchok area.

The resolution of lingering concerns along the LAC in the Western Sector was the subject of lengthy, fruitful, and amicable conversations between the two parties. The Chinese and Indian armies conducted an open and forward-thinking exchange of ideas under the leadership's direction.
