India, China to hold border talks
New Delhi, Feb 6 : India and China will hold border talks here Feb 10-11.
The Indian delegation will be led by National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon, while the Chinese delegation will be led by State Councillor Yang Jiechi.
Besides the India-China boundary question, the two sides, during the 17th round of border talks, will also discuss bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest, a statement said here Thursday.
The last round of talks were held in June in Beijing, during which the two representatives discussed the "maintenance of peace and tranquility on the India-China border areas including possible additional confidence building measures, ways and means of strengthening existing mechanisms for consultation and coordination on border affairs and methodology to enhance the efficiency of communications between the two sides".
Last year's talks had been preceded by a stand-off between troops of the two sides in the Ladakh region following incursion by Chinese troops into Indian territory.
The two countries inked a Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA) during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Beijing in October last year for peace along their disputed boundary.
