Putting the Doklam issue behind and striking a positive note on the lines of the Astana consensus, both countries agreed to maintain regular contact. Both sides also agreed to cast aside differences and also give due respect to each other's sensitivities.

Sources say that the two sides discussed a host of issues which included confidence building measures. It was also decided that the foreign ministries and the militaries of both sides would meet regularly. The source said that sectoral command meetings at various border points too would be held.

Following the meeting both Doval and Jeichi briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 20th round of talks between the special representatives of China and India on the boundary question

"The prime minister fondly recalled his visit to Xiamen for the 9th BRICS Summit in September, and his meeting with President Xi Jinping there.

Yang Jiechi also conveyed the greetings of President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang to the prime minister.
