India and China have agreed to renegotiate a workable mechanism for consultation and cooperation on the disputed border.

Later in the talks, the Chinese army agreed to temporarily withdraw from its current position, but India’s position was that the armies on both sides should move permanently to their former position. Since then, talks between India and China have stalled.
