Indian PM Modi, Chinese President Xi hold talks on Day 2 of Mahabalipuram Summit in India

 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping resumed their one-on-one talks on the second day of the India-China informal summit on Saturday.

The summit is being held at the seaside temple town of Mamallapuram resort of southeastern Indian state of Tamil Nadu after an extensive interaction on Friday.

The two leaders are expected to spend three hours together at the Fisherman’s Cove, a luxury beachside resort overlooking the Bay of Bengal, reports Hindustan Times.

They are initially meeting for a tete-a-tete and this will be followed by delegation-level talks with their aides.

Modi will also host a private lunch for Xi, which is expected to provide yet another opportunity for a one-on-one conversation.

Modi received Xi when he drove in a motorcade from his hotel in Chennai to the Fisherman’s Cove.

They then drove in golf carts to the venue of their discussions.

The two leaders discussed their respective national visions and governance priorities.

Among the issues discussed were trade-related matters, India’s trade deficit and the threat posed by radicalisation and terrorism.
