In­dian, Chi­nese troops meet at Bumla, vow to boost ties

The Hitavada - - NATION -

A HIGH-LEVEL meet­ing be­tween Army of­fi­cials and Chi­nese PLA troops was or­gan­ised on Fri­day at Bumla, near Tawang dis­trict of Arunachal Pradesh, where the two sides reaf­firmed their re­solve to strengthen friend­ship and main­tain peace along the Line of Ac­tual Con­trol.

The 4057-km-long Line of Ac­tual Con­trol sep­a­rates In­dia from China. The del­e­ga­tions, led by Ma­jor Gen­eral PGK Menon from In­dia and Ma­jor Gen­eral Li Xi Zhong from China, hoisted flags of both the coun­tries and dis­cussed ways to boost re­la­tion­ship. This was the first time Ma­jor Gen­er­als of the two coun­tries took part in a bor­der per­son­nel meet­ing (BPM), since its ini­ti­a­tion in 1990, the re­lease said.

The BPM at Bumla was yet an­other mile­stone in the on­go­ing ef­forts by both the na­tions to in­crease in­ter­ac­tions at all lev­els - diplo­matic as well as mil­i­tary channels, the de­fence re­lease said.
