NEW DELHI: India and China will hold the annual meeting of their Special Representatives on their border row here on Friday, it was announced on Wednesday.

The External Affairs Ministry said that while National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will be India's Special Representative at the 20th Meeting of the Special Representatives, China will be represented by Yang Jiechi, State Councillor and a Communist Party Politburo member.

Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a face-off earlier this year in Doklam region near the India-China-Bhutan trijunction.

Earlier this month, the Doklam issue came up for discussion during a meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi here.

The last Special Representatives' meeting was held in Beijing in April 2016. India and China dispute their winding border and went to war over it in 1962.
