Modi-Xi 'no baggage' talks hailed by Chinese media

Modi-Xi 'no baggage' talks hailed by Chinese media

The two leaders have strengthened the principle by giving "strategic guidance to their respective militaries to strengthen communication in order to build trust and mutual understanding and enhance predictability and effectiveness in the management of border affairs".

The meeting is seen as an effort to improve bilateral ties between the two countries which had weakened because of the Doklam standoff previous year.

In a move that could upset Pakistan, Modi and Xi also agreed to undertake a joint India-China economic project in war-torn Afghanistan.

They also highlighted communication between the two sides. One of them was a walk by the iconic East Lake, a popular holiday spot in Wuhan, which was followed by a boat ride.

PM Modi's present visit to China can bring down the chances of reoccurrence of Doklam incident among other things.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned from his two-day informal summit with China President Xi Jinping on Saturday. As per the talks between both the leaders, officials of both sides will identify the project in following up discussions and will work out the modalities.




While Chinese President Xi Jinping has apparently been driven to look more indulgently towards India lured by the huge Indian market with the U.S. slapping heavy import duties on Chinese goods, North Korea's Kim is suddenly seeing merit in befriending his South Korean counterpart and pursuing the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula after being technically at war since 1950.

The release said that the two leaders believe that the simultaneous emergence of India and China as two large economies and major powers with strategic and decisional autonomy, has implications of regional and global significance.

The confrontation escalated after China started building a road at the Doklam plateau, which is claimed by India's ally Bhutan.

Both the leaders are also looking forward to setting aside the bitterness of the past to forge a new relationship. Asked whether the issue of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar was raised, he said the two leaders "did not go into specifics". Modi began his 24-hour trip in Wuhan, in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, on Friday afternoon, with the two leaders touring a museum before Xi hosted a dinner for his Indian counterpart. They committed themselves to cooperate on counter-terrorism.

He said that educational exchanges between India and China was another area where the two countries could work upon.

Muhammad Faruk Khan, presidium member of Bangladesh's ruling Awami League, told Xinhua that the deepening of understanding between China and India will undoubtedly benefit both of them and the region at large. "India is pursuing its "Make in India" initiative, so it is concerned the United States might one day do the same to it", said Associate Professor Lin Minwang, an expert on Sino-Indian ties at Fudan University.
