PANAJI, India (Sputnik) - Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar said that he discussed with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang some outstanding bilateral issues, as well as the SCO, G20 and BRICS on Thursday.
"A detailed discussion with State Councillor and FM Qin Gang of China on our bilateral relationship. Focus remains on resolving outstanding issues and ensuring peace and tranquillity in the border areas. Also discussed SCO, G20 and BRICS," Jaishankar said in a tweet.
In April, the Indian and Chinese armies on Sunday held the first round of military-level border talks in 5 months, to ease tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) -- the de-facto border between the two nations.
The two neighbors have thousands of square miles of disputed borderlands between them, from the Ladakh region, which is triangulated with Pakistan's Kashmir claims, to Arunachal Pradesh to the east of Bhutan. Border conflicts are a permanent fixture of India-China relations, as both countries do not have a marked border but rather the line of actual control, created after the 1962 border war between the nations.
