The Chinese Foreign Ministry released the contents of the discussion which revealed that India and China had reached an agreement on four key points. One is that they agreed to take guidance from the important accord reached by the top leaders (Modi and Xi), which attaches great significance to the stability of the border areas with the development of bilateral relations, and put border disputes in a proper perspective to evade heightening the border clashes writes the Chinese state media – the Global Times.

India and China also welcomed the progress achieved in the recent military and diplomatic meetings, agreed to stay in dialogue and consultation and emphasised the necessity to act on the agreement reached in the commander-level talks and to complete withdrawal of the front-line soldiers as soon as possible, according to the FM release.

“Meetings of China-India Special Representatives are the top political measures to handle the border issues, only second to the summit of leaders from the two countries, and it is safe to say that the special representative agreements send a positive signal to ease border tensions,” Zhao Gancheng, director of the Center for Asia-Pacific Studies at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies said.

The details of the pact, such as who will withdraw first – Indian or Chinese soldiers could be carried out in a “silent” manner, to avoid instigation public sentiments or provoking unreasonable emotions, especially in India, Zhao stated.

The India media reports that Chinese PLA troops have moved back tents, vehicles and soldiers by few kilometres from locations where disengagement was agreed upon at Corps Commander-level talks have not been confirmed by the Chinese officials.
