The five meeting points are at Kibithoo (Arunachal), Spanngur Gap at Chusul (Ladakh), Bum-La near Tawang (Arunachal) and Nathu-La (Sikkim) and at Daulat Beg Oldie in northern Ladakh.
Indian and Chinese troops had exchanged sweets during the last such meeting held on on August 15.
This comes after the two countries had ended the 73-day military stand-off in Doklam.
Making an indirect reference to the 73-day-long military standoff on the Doklam Plateau in Bhutan, Ambassador Zhaohui made a strong pitch for renewing India-China ties by using an idiom that both "India and China should make one plus one eleven".
Speaking on the occasion of the 68th anniversary of founding of the People's Republic of China, Ambassador Zhaohui said, "We should turn the old page and start a new chapter with the same pace and same direction." (ANI)
