In yet another major meeting between the two sides post Doklam standoff ended, India and China on Friday held special representative level talks on key aspects related to border issues.
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and China’s State Councillor Yang Jiechi met in New Delhi along with senior officials for the 20th round of the India-China border talks.
During the day-long talks, the Doklam episode and other concerns pertaining to unresolved issues of boundary between India and China are expected to be discussed.
The Doklam standoff began on 16 June over People’s Liberation Army’s plans to build a road in an area claimed by Bhutan.
It was then that the Indian troops intervened to stop it terming it to be a security risk to chicken neck, the narrow corridor connecting India with its North-eastern states.
