Coinciding with the Indian harvest festival, a special 'Border Personnel Meeting' (BPM) was held with a delegation of People's Liberation Army (PLA) from China at Natu La yesterday to celebrate the occasion.

The delegations comprising eight officers each from both sides were led by Brigadier equivalent officers.

The meeting was held in a warm and cordial atmosphere and the PLA delegation members wished their Indian counterparts on the occasion, defence sources said here today.

A friendly volleyball match between two teams comprising a mix of PLA and Indian troops was also played out.

The keenly played match was enjoyed by the delegation members and PLA seemed keen for more such sporting activities in the near future with the Indian Army.
