Post-Doklam, India, China to hold meeting over border
New Delhi, Dec 20 (IANS) India and China will hold the annual meeting of their Special Representatives on their border row here on Friday, it was announced on Wednesday.
The External Affairs Ministry said that while National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will be India's Special Representative at the 20th Meeting of the Special Representatives, China will be represented by Yang Jiechi, State Councillor and a Communist Party Politburo member.
Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a face-off earlier this year in Doklam region near the India-China-Bhutan trijunction.
