Beijing 'won't force' India to accept Belt and Road project

Beijing 'won't force' India to accept Belt and Road project

Gokhale said Modi and Xi were of the view that Special Representatives on border talks from both countries will have to intensify their efforts to seek a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable settlement.

The foreign secretary said the two leaders agreed on prioritising the maintenance of peace along their borders and "decided to issue strategic guidelines to their military to this effect".

The leaders of Asia's two most-populous countries agreed to strengthen communication between their two militaries to avoid disputes along their contested Himalayan border, after last year's months-long standoff over territory in Bhutan.

Saturday's statement outlined proposals meant to strengthen direct lines of communication between the two nations' militaries, "in order to build trust and mutual understanding and enhance predictability and effectiveness in the management of border affairs".

The two leaders recognized terrorism as common threat and committed to cooperate further on counter terrorism, the top Indian diplomat said. They also had tea after the walk. "They should regard each other as an active factor in the change of world power", Xi said.

Curbing terrorism: Both India and China identified terrorism as a major problem and as such, chose to work together to combat it.

Modi hoped such summits would become a tradition and invited Jinping to India for the 2019 Summit.

They also discussed ways to promote greater cultural and people-to-people exchanges and agreed to explore establishing new mechanisms in this direction.

Facebook , and their CEO, have said that GDPR is helpful because it will set a global standard. The ongoing process is testing Facebook's developer relationships.

It had been suggested in this space last Thursday that the two leaders' agreement on holding subsequent summits would indicate a positive environment for India-China ties. India has cited sovereignty issues for not joining the Belt and Road Initiative, part of which runs through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Tuesday that the two leaders have "a good working relationship and personal friendship".

Both the leaders exhibited a desire to impart a new pace to ties and preventing disputes from holding relations to ransom.

Prime Minister Modi who arrived in the central Chinese city on Friday for the summit began talks soon after President Xi hosted a grand welcoming ceremony for him at the Hubei Provincial Museum here.

They underlined that trade should be balanced, it should be sustainable, and that the two sides should take advantage of the complementarities between the two economies.

His statement assumes significance amid moves by the west, particularly the United States, to take protectionist measures that have hit countries like China and India.

Modi's visit to China, especially the informal meeting with Xi, is obviously not exclusively aimed at preparing for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in June.

Muhammad Faruk Khan, presidium member of Bangladesh's ruling Awami League, told Xinhua that the deepening of understanding between China and India will undoubtedly benefit both of them and the region at large.
