Indian and Chinese leaders have pledged to resolve a long-running border dispute that led to a bloody 1962 war, with a stand-off between troops on the remote frontier overshadowing a rare summit in New Delhi.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he had expressed concerns to China’s visiting President Xi Jinping about “incidents” on the disputed border in the northern Ladakh region, where reports said hundreds of troops were facing off.

“I expressed concern on the incidents on the border and said peace and tranquillity on the border is the foundation for good relations,” said Mr Modi at a briefing after talks with Mr Xi.

“(Xi) agreed that the boundary question must be resolved soon.”

The two countries have long been embroiled in a bitter dispute over their border, with both accusing soldiers of crossing over into the other’s territory

Mr Xi, the first Chinese president to visit India in eight years, said Beijing would work with New Delhi to maintain “peace and tranquillity” until the border issue was settled.

The neighbours, now nuclear-armed, fought a brief but bloody war in 1962 over the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and are still embroiled in a bitter dispute over the territory.

Last year India accused Chinese troops of intruding deep into Indian-held territory, sparking a three-week stand-off only resolved when troops from both sides pulled back.

Details of the latest incident remain sketchy.
