Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Tuesday said the annual India-China military exercise will resume soon.
The Army Chief further reiterated that the diplomatic relationship between the two countries which had turned ‘sour’ after the Doklam stand-off was now ‘improving’.
Rawat also said that ‘military diplomacy’ with the neighbouring country yielded positive results and that the border personnel meetings that had stopped post Doklam stand-off have begun again.
The border personnel of India and China were locked in a 73-day stand-off last year in Doklam.
The detachment of forces took place in August last year, after frantic meetings at various levels between the two countries.
Notably, Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be visiting China next month.
Earlier in December, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited India to attend the Russia-India-China Foreign Ministers meeting.
He also had held bilateral talks with Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj during his India visit.
Last month, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale also made a trip to Beijing, where he held discussions with Wang.
On the other hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also likely to visit China in June this year to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting.
