A Special Border Personnel Meeting was also held on the occasion at the meeting point in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. The latest effort comes after the informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping last week in Wuhan.
According to sources in the army, ''Such meetings indicate the upward trend of relations between the two great nations and building of trust between the two armies deployed on the border."
"Troops and families of both armies were part of of the celebrations which were conducted in an atmosphere of bonhomie and friendship," an official was quoted by news agency IANS as saying.
The official said during the meeting the two sides discussed ways to bring down tension along the disputed borders. News agency PTI quoted sources as saying that both sides were also working on setting up a long-delayed hotline between the Indian Army's Director General of Military Operations or DGMO and the Chinese officer holding a similar position.
The ties between the two countries had soured after a military stand-off that lasted for 73 days between the two armies at Doklam in Sikkim sector last year.
