Indian, Chinese border personnel meet on Independence Day



Guwahati: A special Border Personnel Meeting between India and China was held to celebrate Independence Day at the historic 'Maitri Sthal' at the Bum La pass in Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh.

A large contingent of the Chinese Army personnel along with their families came over to the Indian side of the border as part of the special Border Personnel Meeting (BPM).

A large number of civilian visitors from both sides also came to witness the Independence Day celebrations, which included a grand cultural programme depicting the rich cultural diversity of India, a defence press release said today.

Despite the language barrier, people from both sides interacted with each other in a friendly and cordial environment and cheerfully posed for photographs on the special occasion.

The BPMs between the two armies serve as a vital platform for resolving local issues and fostering confidence amongst the two nations with a view to enhance peace in the sector.
