China and India held a fresh round of talks in Beijing on Thursday as part of efforts to resolve their decades-old border dispute.

State Counselor Dai Bingguo, special representative of the Chinese delegation, discussed the issue with India's national security advisor, MK Narayanan.

The two special representatives touched on other issues of mutual interest during the meeting.

Vice-President Xi Jinping also spoke with Narayanan on the border issue on Thursday.

The latest round of talks, which ends on September 19, is the 12th round of negotiations between Beijing and New Delhi on the border issues. The two sides appointed their special representatives in 2003 to resolve the dispute from a "political perspective".

The Sino-Indian border dispute involves areas as large as 125,000 sq km along their 2,000-km border, which has yet to be officially demarcated.

In 2005, the two sides reached a consensus on the political guidelines for the boundary settlement.

Chinese analysts in Beijing said the border dispute should not be seen as a precondition for deepening the strategic partnership between the two countries.

"It is wrong to assume that only when the border issues are resolved, can China and India further deepen their strategic partnership," said Sun Shihai, deputy director of the Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

"The issue is a long-term and complicated one, and cannot be resolved overnight," Sun said.

"The mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries should continue to develop along with the border negotiations and create favorable conditions for the final settlement," Sun said.

A lot of smokescreens, and no straitforward positions. It is well-known that India is in fears of renewed hostilities from the Chiense side.

There have been cross-border incursions from the Chinese side that have never been reported in the Chinese media.

Yeah, too bad, and never been reported in Western media.

My suggestion:

Buy a newspaper and fabricate your own stories. If you do this well enough, you'll be soon a celebrity for spoiling Sino-(any country) relations. Maybe you even receive an award from RSF, who knows?

Kiwi,

These so called border violations are going on since more than 45 years. Even in India nobody really cares about it except some journalists from the 'Times of India' who are trying since many years to spoil Sino-Indian relations. I don't think that DMZ's are needed because the so called incursions are taking place on some damned glaciers or on high altitude passes in the Himalaya region. Nothing to be concerned about because both sides got used to it.

Other than that we should proceed with our island paradise.

lemme look at a topographical map. I've been to the area in question, and as an officer schooled in the arts of war, I think that an Indian defense is extremely viable! Gimme a few days please!

These Anglo-Americans are trying to cause trouble between these two great ancient civilizations who have got along well with each other for over 5000 years!
That is until the warmongering Anglo-American neaderthals came on the scene, causing trouble between these two close friends.
