Modi tells Xi relations are stable, differences manageable

Abandoned Lake In Mamallapuram Revived Thanks To PM Modi Xi Jinping Meet

Chinese President Xi Jinping exchanged gifts with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Saturday, October 12, in the coastal state of Tamil Nadu before Xi departed for a visit to Nepal.

Relations were ruffled further in August when India revoked the special status of the Himalayan territory of Kashmir, angering both Pakistan, which claims the region, and its all-weather ally China.

"This was quality time that the two leaders spent together one-on-one, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale had said after the meeting, adding the leaders agreed to work together so that radicalisation and terrorism do not affect the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies of the two nations".

He said the two leaders also deliberated on trade and economic issues with a focus on identifying new areas for investment and enhancing trade volume and value of two-way trade.

Xi, wrapped up his about 24-hour stay during which he visited Mamallapuram near Chennai and held informal talks with the Prime Minster. A new era of cooperation will begin today through Chennai Connect', Modi said while referring to the outcome of the first informal summit between the two leaders in the Chinese port past year. "At the same time, we should seek understanding through communication and constantly resolve differences", Xi said.

Third, the two countries should effectively improve military and security exchanges and cooperation, Xi urged.

On commerce, India and China are both facing a protectionist U.S. and want greater access to each other's markets.

Modi said that "plogging" is popular in foreign countries, and praised Belvi for promoting it in India.

"There was a good conversation on trade, an issue of concern; President Xi said China is ready to take honest action in this regard and discuss in a concrete way how to reduce the deficit", he said. He said, the Chennai Connect will herald a new era of bilateral cooperation.

Besides emphasizing the expansion of trade and investment, Modi and Xi resolved to work together in facing the challenges of radicalization and terrorism, Gokhale said.

During talks, China might have urged India to take an independent decision on telecom equipment maker Huawei's bid for India's proposed 3G network and not be swayed by USA pressure.

First, Xi said, China and India need to correctly view each other's development and enhance strategic mutual trust.

The issue of trade deficit and trade imbalance was also discussed, the foreign secretary said.

Xi and Modi met over dinner for more than two hours on Friday after the Indian prime minister took the Chinese president around an ancient temple and some other monuments that are part of UNESCO's world heritage sites in Mamallapuram.

Gokale said Modi and Xi were expected to discuss global and regional issues on the second day.

He called on the two countries to take account of each other's major concerns, properly manage, control and address differences, prevent differences from evolving into disputes, develop a closer partnership and usher in a new era of India-China relationship. For most part of the last 2000 years, India and China have been economic powers, he said.

Noting that he attaches great importance to the friendship with Xi, Modi said he is willing to maintain such conducive and effective strategic communication with Xi and together create a attractive future for India-China relations.
