India, China agree to maintain peace, tranquillity in border areas

India and China held the 18th round of talks between the Special Representatives on the Boundary Question in which both sides agreed to take “necessary steps to maintain peace & tranquillity in border areas.”

In an effort towards demarcating the contentious boundary, both sides also reinforced their commitment to the “three-step process to seek a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable resolution” within the agreed guiding principles.

At the meeting on Monday, India was represented by Ajit Doval, National Security Adviser, and the Chinese representative was Yang Jiechi, State Councillor. This is the first meeting of the special representatives after the Modi government assumed office.

“The Special Representatives continued the discussions to reach a mutually acceptable framework for resolution of the Boundary Question on the basis of the Agreement on the Political Parameters and Guiding Principles,” a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs said.
