Officials from India and China have begun talks to resolve a long-standing border dispute against the backdrop of recent flare-ups of tension between the two Asian giants over their de facto boundary in the Himalayas.

Officials are expected to exchange drafts of a border defence cooperation agreement that they are drafting to better manage their contentious views over the demarcation of each other's territory.

At the talks starting on Tuesday, India is expected to raise its concerns about incursions by Chinese troops into Indian territory. In April, the two countries were caught in a three-week stand-off when Chinese soldiers intruded deep inside Indian boundary.

India and China have held more than a dozen rounds of talks to resolve their border dispute, without making much progress.
