NEW DELHI (Reuters) September 5, 2020 - India and China said on Saturday they had agreed to work towards reducing tensions along their contested border, following a meeting of the defence ministers of the nuclear-armed Asian giants.  


In the highest level face-to-face political contact between India and China since tensions first flared along the border in May, Defence ministers Rajnath Singh of India and General Wei Fenghe of China met late on Friday on the sidelines of the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation meeting 
in Moscow.  


Both countries agreed that “neither side should take any further action that could either complicate the situation or escalate matters in the border areas,” India’s defence ministry said in a statement.  


Wei said the two sides should promote peace and stability and work to cool current tensions, China’s Ministry of Defence said in a news report about the meeting posted on its website.
