Tensions between China and India escalated after military troops from both countries became embroiled in skirmishes in early May.
China and India's high-ranking military officials are holding a dialogue to solve the most recent confrontation between these nations over the Himalayan border region, after thousands of soldiers took up positions on both sides of the frontier.
The dialogue between the world's two most populous countries takes place at the Maldo border post, on the Royal Line of Control (RLC) that corresponds to China.
"This is an unprecedented dialogue. It is the first time that senior generals have tried to reach a common understanding of military matters," the Northern Army's former commander Lieutenant General DS Hooda said.
Over the past few weeks, the two countries had held unsuccessful local-level meetings to end the dispute.
