While Chinese and Indian security forces faced off in the countries’ disputed border region Wednesday, President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi met to sign a multibillion-dollar agreement for Chinese investment in an industrial park in the state of Gujarat, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing an Indian official.

There, Indian troops faced off against Chinese soldiers who last week began building a road in an area that India regards as its territory.
