Modi tells Xi relations are stable, differences manageable


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday told visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping that their relations have attained stability and fresh momentum in the past year.

The Indian Prime Minister also said they would manage their differences prudently, reports AP.

Modi said both countries have decided to be sensitive to each other's concerns as Modi and Xi sat down for delegation-level talks on Saturday in the seaside temple town of Mamallapuram of southeastern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

They were meeting at a time of tensions over Beijing's support for India's rival Pakistan in opposing New Delhi's downgrading of Kashmir's semi-autonomy and continuing restrictions in the disputed region.

Without going into details, Xi said in his opening remarks that he had candid and in-depth discussions with Modi on various issues since his arrival Friday.

Xi will be visiting Nepal at the conclusion of his visit to India on Saturday.
