India, China to discuss incursions, hotline during defence talks

India and China are expected to discuss incursions by PLA soldiers, which are continuing even after the signing of a new border pact, and setting up of a hotline between the two Armies during their Annual Defence Dialogue starting on 24 February.

During the sixth round of Defence Secretary-level talks here, the two countries are also expected to review the functioning of the Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA) signed between them in October last year.

Defence secretary Radha Krishna Mathur will hold discussions with his Chinese counterpart on various aspects of defence ties between the two countries which are expected to include incursions by PLA troops and apprehension of Indian nationals by them on few occasions last year, government sources said.
