India and China on Tuesday reviewed the progress in bilateral ties since the informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Wuhan in April.
Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale met Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou in New Delhi to exchange views on regional and international issues of common interest.
They also discussed the agenda for bilateral engagements in the coming months, the External Affairs Ministry said.
Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi is scheduled to visit India in December to jointly launch with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj the high-level India-China people-to-people exchanges mechanism. Wang recently held the 21st round of India-China boundary talks with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval in China’s Sichaun province.
Modi had recently met the Chinese President in Argentina on the margins of the G-20 Summit. This was the fourth meeting between them this year. The two leaders noted that there has been a perceptible improvement in bilateral ties between their two nations since they defused the Doklam crisis last year when their armies came face-to-face at the trijunction between India, China and Bhutan.
