India and China opened another round of talkson Friday to resolve their decades-old border dispute.
The Indian delegation was led by National Security Advisor M.K. Narayanan. China's Vice Foreign Minister Dai Bingguo headed the Beijing team.
This is the 10th round of talks between the two sides since India and China appointed special representatives to speed up a resolution of the boundary dispute.
India claims 38-thousand square kilometers of Chinese-controlled land in the Kashmir region. China, in turn, claims some 90-thousand square kilometers in the Indian-ruled state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The border dispute has been simmering since a brief war between the two nations in 1962.
Friday's talks will be following by another round on Saturday in Ooty, a popular holiday resort in India's southern Tamil Nadu province.
