China Pictorial (English) - - News -

April 27, Wuhan, Hubei Prov­ince: Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping shakes hands with In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi dur­ing their visit to an exhibition of cul­tural relics.

Pres­i­dent Xi met with Prime Min­is­ter Modi that day, say­ing that he ex­pected their two-day in­for­mal meet­ing to open a new chap­ter in bi­lat­eral ties. “The great co­op­er­a­tion be­tween our two great coun­tries can in­flu­ence the world,” Xi said. He sug­gested that both sides should look at the com­plete pic­ture of Sino-in­dian ties from a strate­gic per­spec­tive, so as to en­sure that re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries al­ways pro­ceed in the right di­rec­tion.

Modi said that the in­for­mal meet­ing has a his­toric sig­nif­i­cance. He called on the two sides to in­crease mu­tual un­der­stand­ing, and work to­gether to deal with global is­sues and chal­lenges us­ing the wis­dom of the two coun­tries.
