C’wealth summit PM shares Pak vision with global leaders

This will be the fourth visit of Modi to China after he came to power in 2014. "It will be important occasion for them to exchange view on bilateral and global matters with objective of enhancing mutual communication at level of leaders".

Swaraj arrived in China on Sunday on a four-day visit to take part in the foreign ministers' meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

Her visit will also prepare ground for a proposed bilateral tour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to China, dates for which are still being worked out.

Swaraj said both leaders will also discuss their respective national developmental priorities and explore the future direction of the multifaceted engagement between India and China with a view to strengthen their closer developmental partnership.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted: "Together we prosper!"

A total of six people were shot. "He did not say anything", Cordero said of the gunman, who he described as "all business". Officials say the suspect was seen running into the woods behind the store and later walking south on Murfreesboro Pike.

"In the new tenure (of Xi), we will work with the Chinese leadership and take the India-China relationship to a new high", she said.

This is their first meeting after Wang was elevated as state councillor last month which makes him the top diplomat of the country in the Chinese hierarchy. Xi and Modi "will set a general direction, identify new goals and create a new dynamic for the growth of China-India relations".

Swaraj, who reached Beijing on Saturday evening, was welcomed by Wang Yi at the Diaoyutai State Guest House in Beijing today for the meeting.

New Delhi's invitation for the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh and its criticism of Beijing's trade and infrastructure strategy, the "Belt and Road Initiative", have also strained relations between China and India amid growing rivalry over regional influence. "It is against this backdrop that President Xi and Prime Minister Modi have chose to hold the informal summit", Wang Yi further said. The talks, aimed at improving the ties between the two countries following the Doklam standoff previous year, come amid a number of significant breakthroughs concerning China, including data sharing on Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers.

The dragon has also agreed to resume the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through Nathu La pass in 2018. The scheduled meeting, a culmination of a series of high-level exchanges between the two countries in the past few weeks, was described by officials on both sides as a milestone in the relationship which has been beset with difficulties in the recent past on a host of issues like Beijing's determination to block India's NSG membership bid and diplomatic, military and economic support to Pakistan.
