New Delhi: Indian and Chinese officials will hold their first meeting of a bilateral border mechanism here on Thursday.

Media reports quoted officials sources, as saying that Thursday's meeting is expected to focus on several issues of mutual interest to the two countries insofar as boundary patrolling and management is concerned.

The dialogue will be held under the framework of Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination on India-China Borders Affairs.

Both sides are expected to think of ways to prevent a recurrence of the Chumar like face off between the armies of the two countries.

The Border Affairs Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination, which was established in 2012, has played a major role in addressing the issues arising of aggressive patrolling by both sides of the disputed border.
