Chinese President Xi wants screening of more Bollywood movies in China

Chinese President Xi wants screening of more Bollywood movies in China”

INP adds: China will not stress on India joining China's key Belt and Road Initiative, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou said after an informal summit between President Xi and Narendra Modi.

The meeting is seen as an effort to improve bilateral ties between the two countries which had weakened because of the Doklam standoff a year ago.

In 2017, Indian and Chinese armies were locked in a 73-day stand-off at Doklam in the Sikkim sector along their border.

Briefing Indian journalists on the informal summit, which is likely to become a regular fixture, foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale said the two leaders had made a decision to issue "strategic guidance" to their militaries to maintain peace on the border.

The meeting in Wuhan is part of an intensifying dialogue between two leaders whose countries comprise more than one-third of the world's population and 18 percent of global gross domestic product. Modi hoped such summits would become a tradition and invited Jinping to India for the 2019 Summit. New Delhi has also been alarmed by China's moves to build strategic and economic ties with Indian Ocean nations including Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India's longtime rival Pakistan.

"They also agreed that both sides have the maturity and wisdom to handle the differences through peaceful discussion within the context of the overall relationship, bearing in mind the importance of respecting each other's sensitivities, concerns and aspirations", Gokhale said.

There were six rounds of meetings between PM Modi and Mr Xi, both at the level of bilateral delegations and one-on-one meetings, where the two leaders were accompanied by only their interpreters.

Modi and Xi had six rounds of talks in the two-day summit where they discussed a wide range of issues. However, he said the 2 countries had agreed to work together in the neighbourhood in what he described as China and India plus One (third country) format. Maintaining strategic confrontation against China, India will lose out on Chinese investment and will have to invest more limited resources into its military, hindering its economic growth, the report added. Obviously, the Doklam standoff did not happen all of a sudden, but was the result of the accumulation of mistrust between the two countries.

Modi will be traveling to China again in June for a summit of the eight-member Shanghai Cooperation Organization dominated by Beijing and Moscow. He also pointed out that Xi had said the problems between the two sides "are of a limited, temporary nature".

Asked whether the two countries would compete against each other in the neighbourhood, the region and elsewhere, and if there was any agreement not to work against each other's interests, Gokhale was non-committal.

"Prime Minister Modi and President Xi recognised the common threat posed by terrorism and reiterated their strong condemnation and resolute opposition to terrorism in all its forms and manifestations".

He said there was no disagreement between the two leaders at the meeting. China has repeatedly blocked India's bid to designate Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN.
