After the withdrawal of troops by India and China from Depsang valley in Ladakh, troops of the two countries will meet in Nathula in Sikkim at the border personnel meeting there tomorrow.

During the meeting, the two sides will discuss the issues between them in the sector, Army officials said here. The meeting is held every year at the Nathula border post between the two sides on 15 May and September 15 where Brigadier-level officers meet.

On May 15, the Indian troops cross over to the other side while on September 115, Chinese troops come to Indian side.

The two sides were recently locked in a stand-off after Chinese troops had intruded into the Depsang valley in Daulat Beg Oldi sector on April 15 and pitched their tents 19 km inside Indian territory there.

The two Armies agreed to withdraw from there after hectic diplomatic and military parleys between them. India had asked its troops to remain on alert along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in all sectors after the incursion incident took place.
