Modi-Xi summit could pave way for launch of LAC clarification process

Modi-Xi summit could pave way for launch of LAC clarification process”

Beijing has confirmed that Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit India for an informal summit on October 11-12. Slated to be the second such event, the informal summit will be held in Mamallapuram in Tamil Nadu.

During the upcoming meeting, officials said Modi and Xi will tour the coastal town of Mamallapuram, near Chennai, home to an 8th century temple. Hence, elaborate arrangements have been made as per security norm. Sources said that India and China will jointly hold anti-terror exercise in December.

The forthcoming Chennai Informal Summit will provide an opportunity to the two leaders to continue their discussions on overarching issues of bilateral, regional and global importance and to exchange views on deepening India-China Closer Development Partnership, the EAM said in a statement.

China, which has been criticised by the United States for its treatment of members of Muslim ethnic minorities, said it believed India and Pakistan must refrain from taking unilateral action in Kashmir and has expressed concern over human rights violations there.

According to a person familiar with the developments, "our objective (through the mechanism of the informal summit) is to ensure that communication between leaders is one which is routinised, easy going and its one that indicates that President XI Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are getting down to business in an informal way not simply in a structured summit. but in a much more practical way of several hours of one to one discussion at which any subject can be discussed". They added that political relations, trade and ways to maintain peace and tranquility along almost 3,500 KM long Sino-India border will be major focus areas in the talks.

Given that India and China will be commemorating 70 years of establishment of diplomatic ties next year, the two leaders are expected to discuss how to make bilateral ties more "people centric", the person cited above said. This would be the two leaders' second informal summit. He said the India-China relationship is not only confined to bilateral ties, but has important regional and global dimensions.

It is Imran Khan's third visit to China since he became prime minister and the visit comes amid ongoing tensions with India after New Delhi ended the special status of Jammu and Kashmir in August. The two sides have already held over 20 rounds of border talks under the framework of the Special Representatives dialogue, set up to find an early solution to the border dispute.

On government's Kashmir move, the MEA sources said that "all countries, including China, have been told categorically and clearly that abrogation of Article 370 is totally India's internal matter". China supports Pakistan in safeguarding its independent sovereignty and territorial integrity, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Tuesday as he met Khan.

Later, Wang in his UN General Assembly speech mentioned the same which drew protests from India.

During Xi's visit, Modi is expected to raise economic issues, including India's $53 billion trade deficit with China in 2018/19, and the smaller presence of Indian companies in China compared with that of other major economies.
