The Ministry of External Affairs Says" PM Modi, President Xi Discussed 'Need to Stabilise' India-China Ties During Bali G20 Summit.
Earlier, it was reported that PM Modi and the Chinese Premier only exchanged greetings.
Modi had met Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 dinner hosted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo in Bali during the G20 Summit in November last year.
This was the first meeting between the two leaders since the Galwan Valley clash between the troops from both sides in 2020 sparked bilateral tensions.
During the Bali G20 Summit last year, Prime Minister and President Xi Jinping, at the conclusion of the dinner hosted by the Indonesian President, exchanged courtesies and spoke of the need to stabilize our bilateral relations.
I think Foreign Secretary did mention maybe he didn’t mention the second part of it.
He did talk about exchanging courtesies and I think there was a general discussion or spoke of the need to stabilize our bilateral relationship or relations," Bagchi said.
MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the two leaders “exchanged courtesies and spoke of the need to stabilize our bilateral relations.
The Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday confirmed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping held a discussion on border issues between the two countries.
The two leaders also talked about stabilising bilateral issues, during their meeting at the G20 Summit last year in Indonesia’s Bali.
