Qingdao Summit to open new chapters of SCO: Wang Yi

Qingdao Summit to open new chapters of SCO: Wang Yi

Whether or not China will be able to win India round to the Belt and Road will likely be a key measure of the success of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's trip to China to meet Xi for an informal meeting on Friday and Saturday. Their two nations are rivals for Asian leadership and share a disputed and often tense Himalayan border.

The proposed Modi-Xi meeting also seems to be helping the Chinese to change their radical attitude towards India highlighted in Doklam standoff a year ago.

Foreign ministers from the eight member-countries have exchanged views on common worldwide concerns, reaching several agreements which have been included in the signing of 14 separate documents.

Kong said the informal summit will also open up new prospects in India-China cooperation.

The last meeting of IMJCC was held in New Delhi in 2016.

Ms Swaraj, who is on a two-day visit to Mongolia, will co-chair the 6th round of India-Mongolia Joint Consultative Committee meeting with Foreign Minister D Tsogtbaatar. "Both leaders have attached great importance to India-China relationship and have devoted a lot of energy to grow this relationship", the Chinese vice foreign minister said.

While China has implemented tariffs on $53 billion worth of United States goods, including American soybeans, cotton, cars and 100 other products following an American proposal for restrictions on up to $60 billion of Chinese technology imports, India is planning to move the WTO against the USA protectionism. China on Monday reassured Pakistan that relations between the two countries were as firm as ever and would "never rust".

Xi and PM Modi met last September and are scheduled to meet again in June for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in China's eastern port city of Qingdao. "The two countries need more communication to enhance mutual trust and eliminate the possibility of another border crisis", The Global Times, considered the official Chinese media, commented on Tuesday.

As two large developing countries engaged in their national modernisation, India-China relations transcend bilateral dimensions and will have bearings on regional and global context, she said.

"My discussion with Minister Wang Yi was to prepare for the informal meeting between our leaders".

China's opposition to India's membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group and the Dalai Lama's engagements are among the major irritants in the relationship.
