According to a GETTR post on January 16th , Indian media news reported that India and China were holding a 14th round of military talks to resolve the border confrontation in eastern Ladakh.

China-India border, where disputed areas remain high tensioned.

According to the report, India expected a constructive dialogue that could facilitate progress on the disputed issues and insisted on de-escalation of the situation in eastern Ladakh, especially in places such as Depsang and Demchok, where a large-scale military build-up had been still underway. Several people were killed on both sides in the clash in Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region backed in 2020. “War of conflict is always an instrument of last resort. But if resorted to, we will come out victorious,” said Indian Army Chief Manoj Naravane.

By far, India and China have held 13 rounds of talks, but neither side has been able to make any progress in the talks. The 13th round of Corps Commander-level meeting, held on October 10th last year, ended with an impasse after the CCP rejected demands from Indian side. Although the two sides are no longer confronting each other in many friction points, tensions between the two counties continue.
