New beginnings? India, China decide to improve communication between their armies

Prime News, National (New Delhi), August 24:- After nearly a two-hour meeting, India and China on Thursday decided to work towards firming up a new bilateral agreement on defence cooperation and agreed to increase interactions between their militaries at multiple levels to avoid Doklam-like standoffs along the disputed border.

The focus of the meeting, between Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and her Chinese counterpart, was to build mutual trust between the two armies guarding the 3,500 km Sino-India border, officials said.

The two sides also decided on early operationalisation of the proposed hotline between the two armies as part of the confidence-building measures, the defence ministry said.  (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
