  • EAM Sushma Swaraj embarks on two nation visit of China Mongolia

The Union Minister, who is on a four-day China visit, will be leaving for Mongolia for a two-day visit on 25 April - a first by an Indian EAM in 42 years.

China on Monday said the "protectionist" trade policy of the United States and the "unprecedented" changes in the world order in the past 100 years will be discussed by Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at their two-day summit this week.

The discussion with Wang was to prepare for the informal summit, Swaraj said. The fact that Beijing took the initiative to invite India for an informal summit, way before the June SCO summit in Qingdao, demonstrates that Xi understands the costs of a prolonged confrontation with India at a time when China's relations with its second largest trading partner, the USA, are deteriorating.

As to the background against which this meeting will be held, Lu said, "I believe you are also clear that the world is now faced with rampant unilateralism as well as the rising protectionism in the process of globalisation".

Swaraj has also assured 25 Hindi learning students in China that soon they will be visiting India. They have to live side-by-side, so it is better to live as a family, said Dalai Lama while talking to reporters during an event at Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management in the national capital.

On the occasion, Wang Yi said that the current development of Sino-Pakistani relations enjoys a good momentum. India is not without options with these countries but we cannot wish away the lure of China's money power either.

This will be fourth visit of Modi to China after he came to power in 2014.

Ms Swaraj has arrived in Beijing on Saturday to take part in the foreign ministers' meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO). "We will make sure that the informal summit will be a complete success and a new milestone in the history of China-India relations". Noting that the the global situation is undergoing a profound change, Wang said, "China and India are natural partners in cooperation".

India became a full member of SCO in 2017.

The key artery of Beijing's ambitious Belt and Road project - China-Pakistan Economic Corridor - is another sticking point in China-India ties as its route passes through the disputed Kashmir held by Islamabad and claimed by New Delhi.
