NEW DELHI -- Indian and Chinese military commanders have held a third round of talks on disengagement along a contested border, Indian government sources said Wednesday, even as New Delhi takes a firmer stand against business and investment from China.

As the Himalayan region of Ladakh simmers two weeks after a June 15 clash in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed, both sides stressed the need for an "expeditious, phased and stepwise de-escalation" during Tuesday's meeting, the sources said.
