  • Xi and Modi visit the Hubei Museum on Friday

This visit was about discussing tourism, regional issues, trade, and strategic military relations.

WUHAN: China and India has reached an understanding during the two-day informal Wuhan summit to launch a joint economic project in Afghanistan, Indian media reported.

In an interview with Xinhua, Volkhonsky said addressing global development issues without the participation of China and India is simply impossible.

WUHAN: India and China have agreed to improve communication between their militaries to maintain peace at the border, India's foreign secretary said on Saturday at the end of an ice-breaking trip to China by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Prime Minister Modi and President Xi recognised the common threat posed by terrorism and reiterated their strong condemnation and resolute opposition to terrorism in all its forms and manifestations". While Mr Modi threw in the invitation for the next summit in India, Mr Xi said that he expected to meet with the Indian leader subsequently too - perhaps giving Mr Modi a soft boost as elections approach in India. The menu card, designed for the private lunch hosted by President Xi for Prime Minister Modi had colours of the Indian flag-saffron, white and green, along with the picture of national bird peacock.

"China and India should be good neighbours and friends".

Other pictures showed Xi accompanying Modi throughout the exhibition as the Indian leader played musical instruments and viewed the displays.

"Thus for the first time in decades the most immediate and important interests of India and China coincide".

"As expected, the "heart-to-heart" communication between the two leaders reflected their deepened mutual chemistry".

The Italian government went as far as granting citizenship to Alfie in an attempt to have him immediately transferred to Italy. Alfie's plight has received considerable global media attention in recent days, especially in Italy and the United States.

As well as disputes over stretches of a 3,500-kilometer border, they are bumping up against each other in the Indian Ocean and squabbling over Xi's signature Belt and Road infrastructure initiative.

Xi greeted Modi at the provincial museum in the city of Wuhan at the start of two days of talks between the heads of the world's two most populous nations.

India and China have a long-standing border issue.

As per the understanding, officials of both sides will identify the project in following up discussions and work out modalities.

In 1962, China and India engaged in a bloody border war, and skirmishes have continued to break out sporadically in the decades since.

During the meetings, Xi pointed out that China-India relations need to be stable and development based on mutual trust.

Chinese Ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui said that both the leaders spent nine hours together during the course of their informal summit.

Narendra Modi and Xi Jinping also pledged that they will personally advise the militaries of both the countries to prevent a Doklam-like scenario in the future.

Terming India and China as engines of economic growth, he added, "Both countries are focussing on the importance of building an open, multipolar, pluralist and a participatory global economic order".
