Background: The Sino-Indian border talks at Hyderabad House in New Delhi - which started Aug 19, following an earlier conference in Peking last June and July - were adjourned on Oct 5.
At a later date the two delegations, led by the Director of the Chinese Division at the Indian Foreign Ministry, Mr J.S. Mehta, and Chinese Asian Affairs Director Chang Wen-Chin, will gather for a final session expected to be held in a neutral city in Asia or Europe.
Talks were supposed to have been concluded by the end of September, but an extension was granted at the joint request of the leaders of the two delegations. It is reported that no ground for agreement has been found by the teams, who have been presenting arguments and evidence to substantiate their Governments' position, for almost automatic rejection by the other side.
