Amid a border row, a customary Border Personnel Meeting held between India and China on India’s Independence Day is unlikely as Beijing has not responded to communications from New Delhi.
These meetings are held at five points – Daulat Beg Oldie in northern Ladakh, Kibithoo in Arunachal Pradesh, Chushul in Ladakh, Bum-La near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh and Nathu-La in Sikkim.
They are held on the national days of both countries.
However, China did not respond to communications from India over holding the meeting. It was unlikely to take place on Tuesday, informed sources said.
