NEW DELHI -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Indian counterpart S. Jaishankar met in New Delhi on Friday in the first high-level visit from Beijing since the start of a border standoff in eastern Ladakh along the neighbors' disputed Himalayan border about two years ago.

"Progress has been achieved on several friction points from the disengagement perspective," Jaishankar told reporters after the meeting. "This needs to be taken forward since the completion of disengagement is necessary for discussions on de-escalation to take place."
