Indian and Chinese military commanders have met to try to resolve a bitter standoff along their disputed frontier high in the Himalayas where thousands of troops on both sides are facing off.
The meeting at a border post Saturday was attended by senior commanders and was the highest-level encounter so far.
Local border commanders held a series of meetings in the past month but failed to break the impasse.

China has sought to downplay the confrontation
