Hangzhou: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit on Sunday.
In their second meeting in less than three months, both leaders are believed to have discussed irritants in bilateral ties like Indias NSG bid and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, which runs through PoK.
Modi and Xi had last met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit in June in Tashkent.
Today’s meeting was important given the steady decline in the bilateral relations over contentious issues despite the good rapport between the two leaders.
The Modi-Xi meeting was followed by a meeting of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) leaders ahead of the G20 summit, which would begin later in the day.
Modi will also hold bilateral meetings with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Saudi Arabias Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
On Monday, he will take part in the second and concluding session of the G20 and hold bilateral meetings with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri before returning to Delhi.
A meeting between Modi and US President Barack Obama is, however, not on the cards during this trip, reports said.
