PM Modi departs for India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday left for India after holding the two-day informal summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the central Chinese city of Wuhan. 

Prime Minister Modi had arrived in Wuhan on April 26 for the unprecedented 'heart-to-heart' meeting with the Chinese President.

The two leaders exchanged views on strengthening the India-China relations which have been hit by the nearly three-month-long standoff at the Doklam plateau. They also recognised terrorism as a common threat and committed themselves towards cooperation on counter-terrorism.

"We discussed ways to give impetus to our economic ties as well as people-to-people relations", said Prime Minister Modi on Twitter.

The Prime Minister has also offered to host the next informal summit with President Xi in India next year. The proposal has elicited a positive response from the Chinese President and top diplomats.

This was the fourth visit of Modi to China since he came to power in 2014. He is again due to visit China to take part in the Shangai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit to be held at Qingdao city from June 9.
