China’s foreign minister to meet new Indian government

Standard

China’s foreign minister will visit India next week for the first high-level meeting between the two countries after new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed office.Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Foreign Minister Wang Yi would arrive in New Delhi on Sunday for a two-day trip as a special envoy of China’s President Xi Jinping.Hong said that Wang would meet Indian officials, including the country’s new foreign minister, though he added that the agenda was still being worked out and could not say if Wang would also meet Modi.Modi last month invited Xi to visit, seeking greater engagement between the world’s two most populous nations on issues of trade and regional security.Beijing has yet to formally respond to that invitation. The last Chinese head of state to visit India was Hu Jintao in 2012.
