He said that on Saturday, the two leaders would discuss international and regional issues.

The Indian Foreign Secretary said that Modi and Xi had discussions over dinner for over two-and-a-half hours on varied topics.

According to Gokhale, the Chinese President was overwhelmed by the welcome reception accorded to him at the airport and also by the arrangements made by the Tamil Nadu government.

Gokhale said the personal rapport between the two leaders was visible during the tour of Mahabalipuram.

The two leaders also agreed to enhance cultural tie-ups and knowledge sharing besides speaking about the ancient trade links that existed between the two countries.

According to Gokhale, the two leaders spent about five hours together on Friday.
