Narendra Modi to meet Xi Jinping in China this week

23 April, 2018, 21:56 | Author: Genevieve Gibbs
  • The Modi Xi summit meeting is taking place in the backdrop of series of high level interactions between both the two countries starting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang’s visit to India in December the first after Doklam standoff

The Union Minister, who is on a four-day China visit, will also attend the SCO ministerial-level meeting on 24 April before leaving for Mongolia for a two-day visit on 25 April - a first by an Indian EAM in 42 years.

Wang said China would continue to give top priority to development under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. "China has confirmed data sharing on Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers in 2018". It will also coincide with the historic meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea.

A Chinese analyst said Modi's visit would be a chance for the two sides to reset ties following last year's protracted military stand-off in the disputed Himalayan border region of Doklam.

"The two countries are important forces in promoting the multipolar world and economic liberalization as well as ensuring regional and world's peace, stability and development", the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Xi and Modi "will set a general direction, identify new goals and create a new dynamic for the growth of China-India relations". We must work very hard to implement the consensus between our two leaders. It comes as both powers seek to reduce risk in their regional environments as China faces down U.S. President Donald Trump's threaten trade actions and Modi seeks to keep India's economy on track ahead of the 2019 election.

Following the Dokalam standoff a year ago both countries increased dialogue to scale down tensions and improve relations with talks at various levels.

Swaraj's China visit comes a week after India's National Security Advisor Ajit Doval met China's senior-most diplomat Yang Jiechi in Shanghai.

Trade protectionism is one where area of geopolitical interest where Modi and Jinping have struck a common chord on earlier occasions as well.

The two countries also held 11th Joint Economic Group meeting and the fifth Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) in Beijing recently. He added, "The summit would go a long way in deepening the trust between the two great neighbours". That no advisors and no ministers will be present in the room with Xi and Modi at a summit of the leaders of almost 40% of the world's population, indicates the importance both leaders are giving to their own role in improving relations between the two countries.
