Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, the second day of the informal summit between India and China. The two leaders will have a comprehensive one-on-one meeting. The meeting between Prime Minister Modi and Xi Jinping is expected to last nearly 40 minutes, which will be followed by delegation-level talks. Both sides will, then, issue separate statements on the outcome of the summit.

Strategic affairs expert Ambassador Ashok Kantha said the focus of the summit on Friday and Saturday would be to move beyond contentious issues and not allow the Kashmir issue to adversely impact overall ties.
