India and China have agreed to resume dialogue on disarmament and non-proliferation, sources said.
The last time these issues were discussed was in 2003.
The decision to resume the dialogue was taken at a meeting between Foreign Minister S M Krishna and his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi — the third meeting between the two this year — on the sidelines of the India-Russia-China foreign ministers meeting in Moscow.
The two leaders also discussed various bilateral, regional and multilateral issues and stressed the need for an early meeting on the "maritime dialogue".
Krishna, the sources added, raised the issue of Indian traders in Shanghai who are involved in a commercial dispute and suggested that the matter be resolved satisfactory and as soon as possible.
Yang assured he would pursue the matter seriously.
