September 16, 2008 16:52 IST
India and China will hold the next round of the two-day boundary talks in Beijing [Images] from September 18, during which their Special Representatives will explore ways to resolve the festering issue affecting the bilateral ties.
National Security Adviser M K Narayanan will head the Indian delegation at the talks while the Chinese side will be represented by State Counsellor Dai Bingguo, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu told media persons in Beijing on Tuesday.
This will be the 12th round of boundary negotiations between the two sides since they appointed Special Representatives in 2003 to resolve the decades-old issue from a political perspective after the diplomatic parleys failed to yield results.
The latest round of talks comes a year after the last dialogue between the two sides on the oundary issue in Beijing.
The two Special Representatives--Narayanan and Dai--are also expected to touch upon other issues of mutual interest during the September 18-19 talks.
Ahead of the negotiations, the People's Daily, the mouthpiece of the ruling Communist Party of China, expressed satisfaction at the course of border talks. In a recent article, it said the strategic dialogue between the two countries has yielded satisfactory results on the border issue.
