Thanks Eric.
So do you advise copying tokens in such cases ? What procedure is advisable ?

Latency increased on target cluster. I’d double check on storage disks but it should be same.

In C*, same number of nodes alone isn't enough. Clusters aren't really identical unless token assignments are the same. In your case though since each node has a full copy of the data (RF = N nodes), they "appear" identical.

I recently migrated Cassandra keyspace data from one Azure cluster (3 Nodes) to another (3 nodes different region) using simple sstable copy. Post this , we are observing overall response time has increased and timeouts every 20 mins.

 You mean the response time on the source cluster increased? Or the destination cluster? I can't see how the copy could affect latency unless you're using premium storage disks and you've maxed out the throughput on them. For example, P30 disks are capped at 200MB/s.

Do I need to copy anything from system* 

No, system tables are local to a node. Only ever copy the application keyspaces. Cheers!
