Differences shouldn't lead to disputes in India-China ties: Sitharaman

Need for Indians and Chinese to learn each other's language: Sushma Swaraj

But India's foreign minister did not express support for Belt and Road in the communique released after foreign ministers of the China and Russia-led Shanghai Cooperation Organisation met in Beijing.

During her visit, EAM will co-chair the sixth round of India-Mongolia Joint Consultative Committee (IMJCC) meeting with Foreign Minister Tsogtbaatar, covering a range of issues including inter alia, political, strategic, economic, educational and cultural ties.

SCO foreign ministers' have met for the first time since the organization expanded its ranks past year to include India and Pakistan as full members.

It is nearly unheard of for foreign leaders to visit China twice in such close succession.

Meanwhile, Sitharaman arrived in China late evening on April 23. The leaders of the two countries will have an in-depth exchange of views on the overall, long-term, and strategic issues of the Sino-Indian relationship, and they will also discuss the trending issues of today's world.

"As SCO members, we can work towards greater coordination and move towards peace and stability", she said at the SCO Defence Ministers' meeting.

China on Tuesday said the upcoming summit between President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Wuhan was a trust-building exercise, which would gradually help resolve the border row, and enable the two countries to address major global problems jointly.

What makes the timing of the visit curious is that Modi is anyway scheduled to visit China in June to attend the 18th meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation in Qingdao.

"The fact that they have agreed on an informal summit shows that the two leaders realise the importance of this relationship", he said.

Why is India Nervous with Chinese Investments in Iran's Chabahar Port? Instead, increasing construction and wooing of India's immediate neighbours and the entry of Chinese warships during the Maldives crisis, has suggested - even to those who want better relations with China - that the "String of Pearls" has only become tighter and stronger.

The SCO, headquartered in Beijing, was founded in 2001. "Indeed, as the world has now realised, there are no good terrorists".

Observers also believe that with deepening China-Pakistan relations, India is keen to restore ties with China. Beijing has not been comfortable with India's outreach to the South East Asian nations, and its exploring defence cooperation with Japan.
