China and India resolved a tense border dispute. There were weeks of tit-for-tat attacks between the world's two most populous nations. The attacks between the nuclear powers took place along their Himalaya border. Chinese and Indian officials met in an area next to the border. They agreed to "peacefully resolve" their dispute in a "cordial" meeting. Both sides agreed to peacefully resolve the situation and follow "various bilateral agreements".

The disputed area is called the Line of Actual Control (LAC). It was created in 1993 and is one of the world's longest borders. Conflicts have taken place since a China-India war in 1962. The icy terrain along the LAC means the border keeps moving. It is difficult to know what areas belong to which country. Both sides agreed that an early resolution would contribute to the further development of their relationship.
