After a war of words with each other over the Arunachal Pradesh border issue and over Dalai Lama’s visit to the State (China alleges that he is promoting separatism), India and China have finally joined hands to address the issue of climate change.

India and China have agreed to set up a joint working group to discuss climate change and policies and projects pertaining to the same. Both the countries are favouring the idea that the developed countries must reduce their emissions by 5 percent. In this regard, the Prime Ministers of both the countries will meet soon during the ongoing Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Thailand.

I hope that India and China find some common grounds to agree and work upon in the context of the border row as well.
