Joint military exercises between India and China will be resumed after a four-year gap, Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony announced Tuesday after talks in New Delhi with his Beijing counterpart.

"We have decided that (to restart military exercises)," Antony told reporters following talks with General Liang Guanglie, the first Chinese defense minister to visit Delhi in eight years.

Chinese defense minister Liang Guanglie said after the talks, "We have reached a consensus on high-level visits and exchange of personnel, maritime security... and cooperation between the two navies." 

"I had candid and practical discussion with the defense minister," he added.
