   Informal Indo-Sino Boundary Talks


Special Representative to India-China boundary talks (also National Security Advisor K. Narayanan) is in China for official-level talks to continue in-camera sessions under “political parameters” set during Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s visit to New Delhi in April 2005.

This new round of negotiations would be taking place after the recent visit to China by Defense Minister Pranab Mukherjee as well as last week’s historic agreement between India and China to reopen the old Silk Road for trade at Nathu La Pass in Sikkim. The previous round was held in March at Kumarakom, Kerala and a brief statement said: “The two Special Representatives continued their discussions for an agreed framework for the resolution of the boundary question in a constructive and friendly atmosphere.”
