PM Modi gifts Xi image embossed silk shawl to Chinese premier

China has made considerable inroads in Nepal, which is traditionally under India's sphere of influence in the region.

There was an acknowledgement that both India and China were "very complex and very diverse countries", and that both will work together so that radicalization and terrorism does not affect their multicultural, multiethnic and multireligious societies, Gokhale said.

Speaking at a global diplomacy level, Jinping said, "Differences between the two countries should be viewed in a correct way".

The two leaders evaluated the direction of bilateral relations in a positive light and discussed how India-China bilateral interaction can be deepened to reflect the growing role of both countries on the global stage.

China and India, Xi said, should strengthen coordination within the framework of multilateral mechanisms including the G20, the BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and the China-Russia-India cooperation, and need to explore the gradual expansion of the "China-India Plus" cooperation to South Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa, create a more unobstructed regional connectivity network, and strike the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement as early as possible.

The two countries should make a success of next year's celebration of the 70th anniversary of their diplomatic relations and the activities marking the China-India year of cultural and people-to-people exchanges, he said.

According to India's Commerce Ministry, India's exports to China amounted to $13.33 billion in the 2018 financial year, compared with imports of $76.38 billion.

On Saturday, members of the Chinese diaspora gathered outside the hotel where President Xi Jinping is staying in Chennai. Xi's decision to brief Modi about Imran's visit could be part of a confidence-building exercise with India. In his post-summit remarks, Modi said the leaders chose to prudently manage their differences and remain attuned to each other's concerns.

India and China share a 3,500km border, over which they went to war in 1962.

"As countries that are large and diverse, they recognised the importance of continuing to make joint efforts to ensure that the worldwide community strengthens the framework against training, financing and supporting terrorist groups throughout the world and on a non-discriminatory basis", said the MEA press release.

He also lauded the Union and Tamil Nadu governments and the people of the State for the hospitality extended to him.

China supported Pakistan in raising India's actions at the UN General Assembly meeting in NY. China said India should not act unilaterally in Kashmir, a portion of which China also controls. It said PM Modi "banked on personal chemistry to iron out the wrinkles in relations between the two nations".

Receiving Xi at the entrance, Modi also extended warm welcome to the Chinese president.

Recently, at the World Economic Forum, Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Mittal stated: "Huawei over the last 10 or 12 years has become extremely good with their product, to a point where I can safely say today their product is significantly superior to Ericsson and Nokia".
