NEW DELHI: In a confidence-building measure, the Indian and the Chinese armies on Sunday activated a new hotline in the North Sikkim sector to facilitate their local commanders to speak directly and address any issue or differences on the ground along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), officials said.

It said the inauguration of the new hotline was attended by ground commanders of the two armies and a message of friendship and harmony was exchanged through it.
