BEIJING (AP) -- China and India have signed a confidence-building measure to cooperate on border defense following a standoff between armed forces of the two Asian giants in disputed territory earlier this year.

The agreement followed a meeting in Beijing between visiting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Li said that Wednesday's meeting will "inject new momentum and vitality into the China-India relationship."

Relations between the nations are overshadowed by a half-century-old border dispute over which they fought a brief but bloody war in 1962. More than a dozen rounds of talks have failed to resolve the issue, and the two sides had a three-week standoff at their frontier earlier this year.
