India-China border talks begin

New Delhi, July 23:  After months of border tensions along the Line of Actual Control, with Chinese troops crossing over into Chumur sector in Ladakh region thrice in five days, the India-China Joint Mechanism on border issues will meet in Delhi on Tuesday for two days of talks.

The meet comes days after the Indian government cleared a proposal to set up a new military unit to counter Chinese incursions at the India-China border.

The meet includes representatives of the two armies besides diplomats and intelligence officers.

India will raise the issue of border incursions at Chumar, North Sikkim and Bara Hoti and will give its views on the Chinese proposal for a border defence co-operation agreement.

Chinese troops had reportedly crossed over into Indian territory thrice on July 16, 18, and 20. On each of these occasions, the soldiers intruded about three kilometres into the Indian side and spent several hours before going back.
