India, China Holding Military Talks Over Disputed Himalayan Border

Indian and Chinese military commanders are holding a meeting to ease tension between the world’s two most populous countries after an alleged Chinese incursion along their disputed 3,550-kilometer (2,205-mile) Himalayan border.

China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a briefing today denied India’s allegations, while Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai of the South Asian country summoned Wei Wei, the Chinese ambassador in New Delhi, for talks last week after the incident in Ladakh in northern India.
