Will review India-China ties from strategic perspective: Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping will review Sino-Indian relationship from a strategic and long-term perspective when they meet at Wuhan on April 27-28.
“We will discuss our respective visions and priorities for national development, particularly in the context of current and future international situation,” he said.
“We will also review the developments in the India-China relations from a strategic and long-term perspective.”
The upcoming meeting indicates a revival in ties between India and China, which faced a rough patch after a 73-day military stand-off between the two countries on the Doklam plateau in the India-Bhutan-China trijunction last year.
Besides the border row, a range of issues plague India-China ties.
The key artery of Beijing’s ambitious Belt and Road project — China-Pakistan Economic Corridor — is another sticking point as its route passes through the disputed Kashmir held by Islamabad and claimed by New Delhi. (Agencies)
