July 6 will be remembered as a very important date in Sino-Indian relations. China and India have agreed on that day to reopen border trade at the historic Nathu La Pass after a more than 40-year hiatus. The pass, which at 4,300 meters is the world's highest custom house, will open next month and cater to trade between the small northeastern state of Sikkim and southern Tibet, with extensions to the rest of the India and China.
