  • The main agenda of the talks is to seek early disengagement of troops from the remaining friction points, such as Depsang Plains and Demchok, where both sides have a strong military presence.
  • The talks are also significant as they come ahead of the possible meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the BRICS summit in South Africa later this month, and the G20 summit in India in September.
  • The border dispute between India and China has been going on for decades, and has escalated in recent years, leading to several violent confrontations and casualties. The two countries have fought only one war, in 1962, when India suffered a humiliating defeat.
  • Since then, they have signed several agreements and mechanisms to maintain peace and stability along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), but the situation remains tense and unpredictable.
