Border dispute: Chinese State Councillor meets PM
New Delhi: Visiting Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo met Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh here on Saturday and is learnt to have deliberated upon long simmering border dispute between the two countries.
However, the hopes of any progress are expected to grind against a recent spike in geopolitical tensions as well as muscle flexing along the border.
India's National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan and Bingguo resumed the talks after a year's gap, focusing on narrowing down differences along their Himalayan border. Twelve rounds of talks have been held before.
The two are also expected to talk the language of partnership, highlighted by a burgeoning trade and a common position on climate change and global trade talks.
