New Delhi, Nov 21: Giving a ''political push'' to the talks to resolve the boundary dispute, India and China today decided to hold soon the next round of negotiations between their Special Representatives on the issue.

''Very soon you will hear the dates for the next meeting of the special representatives,'' Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon told reporters after the talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chinese President Hu Jintao.

''The political push (to the negotiations process) is very clear'' as the Joint Declaration by the two countries issued after the talks between Dr Singh and Mr Hu had asked the Special Representatives to complete ''at an early date'' the task of finalising an appropriate framework for a final package settlement covering all sectors of the India-China boundary, the Foreign Secretary said.

The dates for the next round of talks between National Security Advisor M K Narayanan and his Chinese counterpart Vice Foreign Minister Dai Bingguo were already being worked out through diplomatic channels, Mr Menon said.
