Almost two months after India and China were involved in an eyeball-to-eyeball stand-off across the Depsang valley in Ladakh, the Special Representatives of both sides agreed to seek a fair and rational solution to the Sino-Indian border row, while concurring on additional confidence building measures (CBM) to maintain peace and tranquility along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

This was decided at the two-day long talks between National Security Adviser (NSA) Shivshankar Menon and Chinese State Councillor Yang Jiechi, which concluded in Beijing on Saturday.

Sources said the dialogue was held “in a productive, constructive and forward-looking atmosphere”.

A statement issued by Beijing’s Foreign Ministry said that the border issue between the two will be resolved through peaceful negotiations.
