This would be PM Narendra Modi’s fourth visit to China after his win in 2014. Mr. Modi and Xi Jinping will hold an informal summit in Wuhan’s city on 27 and 28th April. This announcement was made by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj And her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi yesterday.
His visit for the bilateral summit would be a big step in enhancing relations between the countries over the Dokalam standoff. Both the leaders are expected to spend time in talking about the global and domestic scenarios and issues like border dispute.
Swaraj also disclosed that Beijing had agreed on the sharing of the data flow of water in the Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers.
This Wuhan summit is expected to revive the ties between the countries. Swaraj who already reached Beijing will attend the SCO foreign ministers on Tuesday; later will meet the foreign ministers of Russia, Tajikistan, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan.
Wang described his 4th visit to China as a ‘new starting point’ in the countries relationship. This will be his first meeting with Xi Jinping after a faceoff in Doklam. It is also expected that Jinping will seek Modi’s support in the tasks he has in his hand, which deals with the rising antagonism from Trump over many issues.
