Beijing: Top diplomats from India and China will hold the sixth Strategic Dialogue here tomorrow to take stock of the status of bilateral relations and explore new initiatives to improve ties.
Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh, who arrived here yesterday, will co-chair the talks with her Chinese counterpart Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin.
Officials said the two sides will review the entire range of bilateral relations, including plans for leadership-level visits in the second half of this Year of India-China Friendly Exchanges.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei has said the two sides will have in-depth exchanges on bilateral relations, high level exchanges, practical cooperation, international and regional issues of mutual concern.
After the talks, Singh will call on Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
A host of issues, including mutual concerns over stability in the war-ravaged Afghanistan after the draw-dawn of the US-led NATO troops by the end of this year besides India's growing disquiet over USD 35 billion trade deficit, would figure during the talks.
