Delegations of Sino-Indian border guards met at India's highest airport on August 1 and opened their fifth border meeting point, which attracted attention of India's major media outlets, Global Times reports on Monday.

Analysts said it is the second border meeting point set up over the past year, which indicates China and India have made great efforts to safeguard border stability, and that their bilateral ties are getting warmer in many aspects.

The two sides met for the first time at Daulat Beg Oldie in northern Ladakh. The place had seen a three-week-long tense stand-off between the armies of either side in April of 2013, but this meeting was held in an atmosphere of utmost cordiality and friendliness, according to The Tribune, an English language Indian daily newspaper.

Located in the cold desert region, Daulat Beg Oldie is about 9 kilometers far away from the line of actual control in Sino-Indian border areas. 

The meeting was scheduled to mark Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Day. The two sides reflected on a mutual desire of maintaining and improving relations at the border, reports The Tribune.

The fourth border meeting point is located at Kibithoo, the extreme eastern area of south Tibet. The area opened this May. Before these two new border meeting points opened, local commanders met at three points located in Ladakh, south Tibet and Northeast of Sikkim respectively.
