Beijing: The border meeting of Chinese and Indian army officers shows that “bilateral ties are getting warmer”, a state-run Chinese daily said on Tuesday.

People’s Daily said that Chinese and Indian officers met at India’s highest airfield on August 1 and opened their fifth border meeting point.

The daily cited analysts as saying it is the second border meeting point set up over the past year, “which indicates China and India have made great efforts to safeguard border stability, and that their bilateral ties are getting warmer in many aspects”.

The two sides met for the first time at Daulat Beg Oldie in northern Ladakh. The area had seen a three-week-long tense stand-off between the armies of either side in April 2013.
