Xiamen, China Sep 3: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are holding a bilateral meeting on Tuesday. This after more than a week after India and China announced resolution of the 73-day-long Dokalam standoff.
According to officials, the two leaders are scheduled to hold a meeting on September 5 on the sidelines of the 9th Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa (BRICS) Summit, which will start tomorrow in this port city of China.

The Chinese and the Indian troops were engaged in a standoff since June 16 after the Indian side stopped the construction of a road by the Chinese army. On August 28, Indias External Affairs Ministry announced that New Delhi and Beijing have decided on "expeditious disengagement" of their border troops in the disputed Dokalam area.
