NEW DELHI - China's defense minister is due to visit India next week to seek deeper military ties, in a rare trip seen as a sign Beijing wants to stabilize its heavily fortified Himalayan border as it deals with growing friction in the South China Sea.

General Liang Guanglie will be the first Chinese defense minister to visit neighboring India in six years, a period that has seen a build up of infrastructure and weapons in disputed regions on both sides of the border.

Guanglie will arrive in New Delhi on Sept. 2 and leave on Sept. 6, the Indian government said in a statement. Measures to increase "peace and tranquility" along the border are on the agenda.

"The two sides will also discuss measures to promote defense cooperation between their armed forces," the Indian government said.
