New Delhi, February 13

Army men from India and China on Tuesday held a ceremonial Border Personnel Meeting (BPM) at a Chinese garrison in Chushul Sector of eastern Ladakh during which both sides reaffirmed their commitment in maintaining peace along the border, officials said.

The meeting was held at Chinese Army's Moldo Garrison on the occasion of Chinese spring festival, they said.

"Delegations of both countries reaffirmed their commitment towards enhancing existing cordial relations and maintaining peace," said an army official.

There are five BPM points along the nearly 4,000-km Sino-India border. The BPM points are Kibithu, Bum La, Daulat Beg Oldi, Chushul and Nathu La.

Troops of India and China were locked in a 73-day standoff in Doklam last year after the Indian side stopped construction of a road in the disputed area by the Chinese Army. The face-off had began on June 16 and ended on August 28. — PTI
